Anyone who has seen Lokum (Turkish Delight) being made in the factory knows that although it is not difficult, it is one of those "Don't try this at home, folks" type of things.

Even the list of ingredients, (sugar, water and starch), seems comically simple, the trick with Lokum is in the way you put them together. If it is over-cooked it becomes stiff, and becomes a messy blob if it is undercooked. Learning how to make Lokum doesn't happen overnight, one specializes in this craft only by watching, tasting and finally cooking this taste bud temptation.
