How to Make Mevlana Candy?
Have you ever wondered how Mevlana Candy is made?
Konya has very important tastes. Mevlana Candy, which is completely identified with Konya, is one of these special flavors.
Mevlana Candy is a flavor unique to Konya, which visitors to the city buy without any exception. One of the best known products of Konya and one of the first products that come to mind when it comes to Konya, there is almost no one who does not like this sugar which is white in color, hard in appearance, but dissolves immediately when taken into the mouth … It is possible that this sugar has a spiritual meaning as well.
Have you ever wondered how the original white color of Mevlana Candy, which is flavored with different fruits or cocoa today, is made? The stages that Mevlana Candy goes through in order to get its unique taste and its consistency in the mouth are as follows: Powdered sugar and water, which are the main ingredients of all candies, are transferred to the copper cauldron. However, it is very important that the water is enough to cover the sugar. Because otherwise, the consistency of the sugar is not as desired. The mixture is stirred frequently until it reaches 100 degrees Celsius. Lemon salt is added to the mixture that reaches this temperature. Since the lemon salt makes the sugar ferment, the mixing process ends after this material is added. Because mixing is against the nature of fermentation… Depending on the season and extra conditions, the mixture is heated up to an average of 140 degrees. When it reaches this temperature, the next process is cooling, which is done on the cold-circulating sheet plate. However, before the mixture is poured on this plate, the plate must be oiled with corn oil. Because otherwise the sugar is sticking to the plate. This phase does not take long.
The Source of Flavor is in the Whitening Process
After about ten minutes, it is taken to special machines for bleaching. This is where mastery comes into play. Because the sugar rises and finds its consistency at this stage, and only the master can decide that the sugar has been bleached enough. After that, wax is applied on the sugar transferred to the molds for easy cutting. The sugar sliced by special machines is sieved. Water is sprinkled on the sugar that is sieved. Thanks to this water, the sugar is moistened and this moistening process allows the sugar to reach the desired softness. Moisturizing sugar is covered with a cloth. After five or six hours, Mevlana candy appears with its delicious taste and consistency.
