It was the photo of the delicious-sounding halva-topped doughnut that got me thinking about the amazingly delicious Turkish sweet called pismaniye.
It was the photo of the delicious-sounding halva-topped doughnut that got me thinking about the amazingly delicious Turkish sweet called pismaniye. I'd always assumed that it was some sort of spun halvah, but it turns out that it's actually a pulled sugar candy that's flavored with butter-roasted flour (which, it turns out, is a total doppelganger for sesame). The long, super thin strands make it even more fun to eat than cotton candy and it has so much flavor beyond just sugar. Even before you try it, it's worth looking on Youtube to see how how much brawn it actually takes to make this airy melt-in-your mouth flossy confection. Or you can count along with Dave Arnold in his video to see exactly how many strands there are in a handful. Pismaniye is available at Kalustyans.com and Amazon.com and any shop that carries Turkish delicacies.
