    Hello everyone, really happy to join and hopefully receive some help.

    First, I must say that I don't cook or bake. I'm not very clever with it. That's why I'm here.

    My partner and I are having a go at Turkish delight. We have tried every available recipe online and YouTube. We CAN NOT get our cornflour to thicken once the hot sugar is added. We must have tried at least 10x now. We are going bonkers thinking of how it's possible to go so so wrong!

    The cornflour will thicken on its own. We have tried different brands, as well. The sugar gets to 240f. We have tried both thickening the cornflour first (then adding the sugar slowly), and also wisking it into the sugar. Doesn't matter: both ways turn out the same-thin, watery, yellow stuff.

    We're really trying, and getting so disappointed. What are we doing wrong?

    Thank you,
