Turkish Delight (Lokum)

I must say, I have been a fan of Turkish Delight long before I read Lewis Carrol's "The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe", that said, it has taken me this long to actually have a go at making it simply through fear of complexity and not recognising some basic ingredients. It wasn't until I bought a bottle of rose water for the Baklava that I began investigating. And here we are, make sure you have plenty of time to devote to this recipe because the cooking time can vary from an hour through to half a day depending on your volume. Todays recipe should take about 2 hours or so to complete.
