The object of my affection? What is made from sugar, water, pistachio, hazelnut, almonds, coconut, carrot, and citric acid?
Answer: Cezerye also spelled cezeriya
Cezerye is a type of lokum or Turkish delight. It is rumored to have aphrodisiac properties but if so, it's only managed to make me fall in love with eating it!
Two Turkish bloggers have written about it, check out their posts at Yogurtland and Rustic.
Congratulations to the winner, Raedia!
