Chewy and fruity, jujube candy is one of the most popular childhood hits. Gelatine, coloring and fruit juices come together in this sugary delight.

Ingredients of Turkish Jujubes

  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2.5 Tbsp gelatin
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • Food coloring as desired
  • An 8" square pan, greased
  • Castor (powdered sugar) or coating or if you want granulated sugar

How to Make Turkish Jujubes

  1. Sprinkle the gelatine on to the 1 cup of cold water and leave to soften.
  2. Cook water and sugar to a hard ball consistency (a drop of it dropped in a cupful of cold water should immediately form into a hard lump.)
  3. Take the syrup off the heat and add the gelatine, juices, and coloring at once. Mix and strain through a fine sieve.
  4. Pour into the prepared pan and leave to set. When firm, cut into desired sized shapes, roll in the sugar and serve.
