About the Food;
Multi week from now is Kurban Bayramı (Sacrifice Feast) for muslims. In Turkey lokum is one of the traditional sustenances of Bayrams, so I made home made lokum for this Bayram. I made it with raspberry and pistachios. You can use different flavors as showed by your taste. In any case, when doind this, you shouldn’t chage the paces of the fixings.
As opposed to raspberries, you can use strawberries, blackberries or dim mulberries in a comparative aggregate. For orange flavor you can use crush and ground segments of a half orange. You can in like manner use a comparative total for lemon. For rose flavor, 2-3 tablespoons rose water will be okay. For the mastic upgrade you can use two small amounts of mastic, squash them while using.
You can use sustenance concealing to give an undeniably vivacious colourt, yet do you need it for a hand created sustenance? I suspected to such an extent.
A couple of fixings are used twice in the equation, so I thought of them twice in the fixings, it is definitely not a blunder. I moreover created the totals in the preperation each time not to dumbfound when to use which aggregate.Lokum isn’t hard to make, anyway it takes some time. Separate a huge bit of a day to make it effectively. Never dismiss the pot in the foaming stage. It gets more sizzling than percolating water. So be careful about yourself and repulse kids from the kitchen.

Continue cooking until the sugar mix diminishes and thickens yet before it changes to a caramel concealing (a light concealing is okay).
