Rock Candy (Akide Candy) History
Akide candy is one of the most important culinary heritages of Turkey. Akide candy was invented in the 16th century at a time when sugar was very expensive and more valuable than honey.
How is Rock Candy (Akide Candy) Made?
You should try our Akide Candy made using natural fruit extract.
The ingredients of akide candy are quite simple, yet making it requires a certain amount of expertise. Sugar with some water is heated up to about 175-180C (350F). Sugar has to be melted completely and come to an almost caramel consistency and poured on a marble counter. Marble is crucial in this process as the natural cooling effects will help with the cooling of the melted sugar and bring it to the right consistency to make the candy. At this stage, the aromatics (e.g. mastic, mint, lemon, rose petals, pistachio, cinnamon, clove, etc.) are added to the sugar and the kneading process starts that helps to bring down the temperature of the sugar, makes it pliable and incorporates the aromatics. When the cooling sugar comes to about 70C (160F) the shaping of the candy starts. Timing is very crucial in this process as the sugar hardens as it cools, so help from a heat lamp or a table with bottom heat is needed. The end product is the colorful little hard candies that are like little gems.
