Brass Turkish delight bowl in the hareem

Brass Turkish delight bowl in the hareem

This traditional style brass Turkish Delight bowl from Istanbul keeps its contents from drying out (as if it lasts that long uneaten!) and works well with a paper cupcake case to catch the icing sugar that accumulates. The box of Alaeddin Turkish Delight was bought in Istanbul too, and is what you find in corner shops and supermarkets there. It does appear in the UK as well, but supermarkets here sell own-brand Turkish Delight in the Turkish style (as well as all the Fry's bars in a different section!)

Used in my Turkish Delight blog post.
