JD - Chookie gave this recipe to me last week so I made it for my Mum's 90th - she is a Turkish delight lover as is my DD so it went down well as a light dessert after our big lunch on Saturday. I chopped my Turkish Delight bars (2) and pistachios roughly in the Thermomix by using the turbo button in short spurts to get the desired size.

Kimmyh - I made a vanilla version of this today ( don't like Turkish delight ugh). Don't have ice cream maker so froze it in Tupperware slice tray and blitz in TM when semi frozen and returned to freezer. Bit sweet but very yummy and just as good as egg recipes. Will reduce sugar a bit next time. Hard to stop eating it. Great recipe to have when no eggs in house. Thank you for posting.

jeninwa - Made this last night in my new ice cream maker, turned half into Turkish Delight and the other half into Cherry Ripe, DH wasn't to keen on the chunks of frozen Cherry Ripe, will cut smaller next time. Thanks Chookie for another great recipe.

CP - This ice-cream was delish. Had it with stewed plums. It's going to be so much creamier in my ICM'.

ES - I made this ice-cream again as plain vanilla, and churned it in my new ice-cream maker. I reduced the sugar to 175g and may reduce the sugar down to 150g next time. This is so simple and doesn't set rock hard in the freezer. We love it.

Herbal - Love, love, love this!!  Made it last night and put it in my new ice cream maker (I bought the Breville BCI600 and it's awesome).  So, so easy, so beautiful.  Thanks so much!

Thanks for the recipe Chookie.  I wonder how it compares to the QFITT Turkish Delight ice-cream.

I don't have an icecream machine but maybe Santa will give me one for christmas (I've been good I promise)...

I have had a look at Alyce's recipe as I had forgotten she had one.  It looks very nice but is quite different.
The recipe I have posted has no eggs and doesn't need heating/cooking. The process is also quite different.

In the name of research,  we should try both ;D

I agree Chookie, when it comes to ice cream the more research the better!

Thank you Chookie. What a wonderful Christmas present. When I make my batch I will make half with Turkish Delight and half with Violet Crumble.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

We love Turkish delight in our house, so I would love to make this, but I don't have any rose water. Can you suggest where I could buy some?

An Indian spice shop should have some.

Or a Middle Eastern Shop or try the Adelaide market.  I have even seen it in Safeway here.
