It was first made in Komotini by Nedim, in the 1950s. The nuts as the main ingredient are passed through a thread and dipped in a mixture of Turkish delight. The final form of the Turkish delight is reminiscent of sausage for this and is called “Sujuk Turkish delight”.
Suzuk lukum is a large, elongated Turkish delight that contains sugar, glucose, nezeste, water and nuts (tied in string). Walnuts can replace the lack of sugar as a sweetener. Sujuk lukum first appeared in the harems of the sultans, while it is served in cafes along with coffee and is a traditional treat in Orthodox monasteries.
The soutzouk loukoum, made in the city of Komotini by special craftsmen, differ from the other loukoumia in the walnuts, which have been threaded inside, and of course in their shape, which looks like a soutzouki (big sausage).
The materials used in their preparation are glucose, sugar, water, nuts, starches and of course the technique, which, probably, will remain a seven-sealed secret, because on the one hand it can not be described, on the other hand it is part of the cultural heritage of Komotini.
