Salep is a delicious winter drink popular in Turkey. It’s a creamy, sweet drink served hot with cinnamon and pistachios. The drink has a very special taste which comes from the tuber roots of an orchid that grows in the mountain regions of the country. People wait all year for winter to enjoy this treat as the tuber flour can be expensive, sometimes costing up to $300 per kilo.
