Turkish Delight with Double Roasted Pistachios

C. S. Lewis' favorite sweet.

I remember reading The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe as a kid and being flabbergasted when Edmund gave up his siblings to the White Witch for plates of Turkish Delight. I’d never had Turkish Delight, but I figured it must taste amazing if a kid was willing to abandon his family just to have some. After tasting this confection from Turkey, I finally understand some of his motivation.

Its flavor is ultra complex, dazzling, sweet and salty, layered in pistachio. Chewy, crunchy, nutty and sweet, you don’t have to make a deal with a witch to enjoy this traditional Turkish treat. Comes in a handsome blue tin.
