Simple Delicious Turkish Delight

Turkish Delight is a traditional sweet made with rose water. Our Samaria Farm Turkish Delight is a favourite when we have functions and events – or visitors!

This recipe is tried and tested in the Samaria Farm kitchen, and made from our own rose water, so that delectable subtle fragrance and flavour is at its absolute best. You simply can’t get better than that. And you don’t need to be a master chef!
