HINT** It takes a bit of trial and error to gauge when the lokum mixture is ready. If it boils too long it will turn out hard like toffee, and if it is too soft it will not keep its shape when cool. It should feel soft but firm after cooling. From Eastern Mediterranean Cooking . Posted by DEBORAH AKYUREK, Prodigy ID# DNJS60B.
