Lokum

Ingredients

5 cups Water
8 cups Sugar
2 cups Cornstarch dissolved in 1 cup water
24 x Quarter ounce (makes two cups liquid) unflavored gelatin pouches
1/2 tablespoon Lemon juice
1 tablespoon Rose water
2 tablespoons Mastic (mistakki)
2 cups Shelled pistachios
2 cups Cornstarch, for dusting

Preparation

1
In a large pot, combine the water, sugar, cornstarch solution and gelatin.
2
Mix well, then stir on medium heat for 30 minute, or until the mixture thickens. Add the lemon juice, rose water, mastic and pistachios. Gently stir until well mixed (about 5 minutes). Remove the mixture from heat and let stand for 10 minutes, or until lukewarm.
3
Pour mixture in a well oiled 9"x13"x2" (or similar size) pan. Place in the refrigerator until well jelled.
4
Turn mold out onto a cutting board covered with the corn starch. Sprinkle corn starch on top of the mold so that it doesn't stick. With a lightly oiled knife, cut into desired shapes and sizes. Coat the pieces on all sides with the corn starch.
