Wash the lemons and slice them finely with the skins. Place one layer lemon slices on the bottom of a wide bowl (see the picture). Then spread half of the sugar on them (see the picture). Then put another layer of sliced lemons (see the picture) and spread the remained sugar on top (see the picture). Cover the bowl with plastic wraps; make sure it is air and sun light tight.

Turkish Coffee With Milk (Sutlu Turk Kahvesi)

1 tsp Turkish Coffee
1 tsp sugar
1 Turkish coffee cup of milk (see the picture)

Put the coffee and sugar in the coffeepot (cezve: see the picture) and stir. Fill the Turkish coffee cup with milk, leaving some room at the top and add the milk to the cezve.
Put it on high heat and stir with a spoon to let the sugar dissolve and coffee to mix with the water. When it starts being foamy on the surface, take some of the foam with a spoon and put into the coffee cup. (It is for a foamy Turkish coffee) When bubbles form on top and starts rising, take the cezve off the stove and pour the coffee into the cup.
There would be grinds at the bottom of the cup, do not drink this part.
You can serve the Turkish coffee with a glass of water and a piece of chocolate.
ENJOY!
Turkish Coffee has been an important part of Turkish Culture. There is an old saying about it. “Bir fincan kahvenin kirk yil hatiri vardir”(A cup of Turkish coffee will be remembered for forty years.”) It means that the person who offers the coffee is to be respected and remembered for a long time for the sake of his offering. For many people, the most enjoyable side of Turkish coffee is when another person reads the coffee grains, which is a kind of fortune telling.

Bununla ilgili eski bir soz de vardir. “ Bir fincan kahvenin kirk yil hatiri vardir” Turk kahvesini ikram eden kisiye uzun zaman boyunca saygi duyuldugu ve ikramindan dolayi uzun zaman hatirlandigi anlamina gelir. Cogu kisiye gore, Turk kahvesinin en eglenceli yani, birinin kahvenin telvesinden fal bakmasidir.

Turkish Tea (Turk Cayi)


1 tbsp Turkish Tea leaves
3 cups purified water
1 cup purified water (to wash the tea leaves)
A pinch of sugar

Fixing Turkish Tea With Caydanlik
Caydanlik (see picture) consists of two kettles. The small one is the brewer (demlik), to put the tea in and the larger is to boil the water.
First place the Turkish Tea leaves into the brewer and in order to obtain a clear, bright and healthy tea, wash them with purified water and then drain. Otherwise the immediate contact of the tea leaves with boiled water would result in the lost of the Vitamin C and affect the minerals in it. Also boiled water damages the tannin (tanen) material and it causes anaemia(kansizlik). Add a pinch of sugar to adjust the strongness of the tea.
Put the 3 cups of water in the larger kettle and put the brewer on top of it. Then place the caydanlik over medium heat and let the water boil. Pour the half of the boiled water into the brewer over the washed tea leaves. You can add some more water in the bottom kettle and boil it (if the water seems not enough). Let the tea brew for about 5-8 minutes over low heat.
Using a tea strainer, pour the tea to the tea glasses. Fill 1/3 of the glasses with tea and the rest with boiled water. You can adjust the brew amount as you like. You can use a few drops of lemon juice, for a lighter taste. Also you can add some sugar to taste.
To obtain aromatic taste you can add 1 tsp of bergamot to the brewer and 2-3 cloves to the water.

Fixing Turkish Tea With Coffee Machine
If you do not have caydanlik, you can try the coffee machine to make Turkish Tea. It will not be as delicious as the tea made with caydanlik, but it is an option. Just place the Turkish Tea Leaves where you normally put the coffee and use 4 cups of water. And start the machine. Meanwhile boil some water to adjust the lightness of the tea. When it is done you can adjust the tea with adding some boiled water. Pour the tea to the tea glasses or cups
ENJOY!

1 yemek kasigi Turk Cayi
3 su bardagi icme suyu
1 tutam seker

Demlik ile Turk Cayi Yapmak
Caydanlik iki bolumden olusur. Ustteki kucuk olan, cayi icine koydugumuz demliktir ve alttaki de suyu kaynattigimiz bolumdur.
Oncelikle cayi demlige koyun. Daha berrak, parlak ve saglikli bir cay elde etmek icin cayi yikayip suzun. Cay yapraklarinin kaynamis sui le ani temasi , caydaki C vitaminini yok eder ve icindeki mineral degerlerini azaltir. Ayni zamanda kaynamis su , cayin icindeki tanen maddesini parcalar, yok eder ve bu da kansizliga yol acar. Bunu onlemek icin demlige koydugumuz cayi temiz su ile yikiyoruz ya da 1-2 kasik soguk su ile islatiyoruz. Aciligi onlemek icin bir miktar seker ilave edi Caydanligin alt kismina 3 su bardagi suyu koyup uzerine demligi koyun. Caydanligi orta ateste kaynamaya birakin. Su kaynayinca, yarisini demlige , yikanmis cay yapraklarinin uzerine dokun. Eger su yeterli degilse, caydanligin altina biraz daha su ilave edip kaynatabilirsiniz. Dusuk ateste cayi 5-8 dakika demleyin.
Cay suzgeci kullanarak, cayi cay bardaklarina dokun. Bardagin 1/3 unu dem, geri kalanini sicak sui le doldurun. Cayin demine isteginize gore ayarlayabilirsiniz. Daha hafif bir tad icin bir kac damla limon suyu ilave edebilirsiniz. Isterseniz seker ile tatlandirabilirsiniz.
Aromatik ve kokulu bir cay icin; demlige 1 cay kasigi bergamot, suya 2-3 tane karanfil ilave edebilirsiniz.

Kahve Makinesi ile Turk Cayi Yapmak
Eger caydanliginiz yok ise, kahve makinesi ile cay yapmayi deneyebilirsiniz. Caydanlik ile yapilan cay gibi lezzetli olmayabilir, ama bir alternative olabilir.
Kahveyi koydugunuz bolume Turk Cayi yapraklarini koyun ve su haznesine 4 su bardagi su koyun. Makineyi calistirin. Bu sirada cayin demin ayarlayabilmek icin ayri bir yerde biraz su kaynatin. Cay hazir oldugunda; cayin dem oranini kaynattiginiz suyu istediginiz oranda ilave ederek ayarlayabilirsiniz.
AFIYET OLSUN!

Ayran

2 cups of plain yogurt
½ or 1 cup purified water
1 tsp salt (optional)

Place the yogurt in a bowl and whisk it by hand or with mixer until it is smooth. Then add water and salt (optional). If you see the bubbles after whisking, that means you have done your best to make the ayran. Then pour the ayran to the glasses.
Drink ayran as quick as possible after you prepare since after a while yogurt would descend at the bottom.
Ayran goes well with chicken, meat or vegetable dishes.
ENJOY
