Turkish Delight

Melt 1 oz. of gelatin in a cup of cold water and put this into a saucepan with one pound of fine sugar and the juice of an orange and a lemon. Boil it up three times and then simmer it about twenty minutes till sticky. Butter a soup plate and pour half the mixture into it.

Color the remainder with a few drops of coloring, pour it on to the rest and set it to stiffen.

Then warm the plate slightly to loosen it, turn it on to paper dusted with icing sugar, cut it into squares, and sugar these also. Store it in a tin.
