Baklava ~ Most of us are familiar with Greek-style baklava which often features honey as the main sweetening ingredient. Turkish baklava is sweetened with “serbet”, a light syrup made from sugar, water, and lemon juice. This makes Turkish baklava much lighter and crispier than most Greek or Middle Eastern-style varieties! Turkey is a baklava-lovers paradise in every sense! πŸ’πŸ™‹πŸ˜ #ruchyum #ruchyumtravel #baklava #turkey #istanbul #turkishfood #foodpics #food52 #dinner #lunch #nomnomnom #eeeeeats #foodporn #foodphotography #igfood #traveldiaries #travelporn #igtravel #symmetry #bestforlast

LOKUM/Turkish Delight ~ It is a family of confections based on a gel of starch and sugar. Premium varieties consist largely of chopped dates, pistachios, and hazelnuts or walnuts bound by the gel; traditional varieties are mostly flavored with rosewater, mastic, Bergamot orange, or lemon!
