Turkish Delights and .50 BMG

    Last night I was Googling around for Turkish Delight recipes. Not only did I find a good recipe but I also discovered that .50 BMG brass makes for a nifty wax seal.

    From Marcus Ranum’s Turkish Delight recipe (NSFW) …

    This little box of turkish delight was filled with several layers, separated with sheets of parchment paper and powder. It was then wrapped and sealed with wax pressed with the butt end of a live .50 BMG SLAP round. Don’t put live rounds into 400 degree wax!I survived but you might not!
