Finot durum wheat
Finot de blé durum (durum wheat semolina) is used for the preparation of fresh homemade pasta, such as earrings, lasagne. The size of its grains makes it ideal for the preparation of the classic semolina soup.
In addition to being used for making pasta, durum wheat finot has several uses. It can replace all or part of the all-purpose flour or wheat flour required in bread recipes. The result is a softer bread with a crispy crust.
Durum wheat finot can be served as a hot cereal by heating it with milk over low heat and stirring constantly until the mixture thickens. A pinch of semolina can be added to soups and sauces to thicken them (thanks to its high gluten content, a small amount is more than enough). It can also be used to flour the bottom of a pizza crust.
