I know a lot of people hate semolina but personally I love it, my mum often used to make it and since moving into my own home and getting married its a regular in my home too, the brand we use the most is Whitworth's.
Whitworth's Semolina is sold in a box which is mainly blue in colour, it has the Whitworth's logo on the front and also informs the customer that this semolina is delicious and ideal for hot and cold puddings and desserts and is a delicious low fat food. The front of the box shows a bowl of semolina along with fruit and biscuits.
The rest of the box is taken up with a recipe suggestion, directions for making the semolina, the nutritional values which are given for 100g of the uncooked product and an allergy warning stating that the product contains gluten and wheat.
Inside the box the semolina is sealed inside a plastic bag to keep it nice and fresh, Whitworth's semolina is an off white colour and is almost like a sandy powder, its slightly grainy.
To make basic semolina you need 1 pint of milk and 2oz of semolina, the recipe on the box for this shows how to make it in the oven or the microwave, personally more often than not I make my semolina in a saucepan rather than the oven. I simply warm the milk gently then add the semolina whilst stirring until boiling point. Once the semolina has thickened I add whatever we are having with it and serve. Personally I never measure out the semolina I just do it by guess work but if you are not confident enough to do this the instructions on the box are easy to follow.
Once made Whitworth's semolina is nice and thick with a slight texture to it, its sweet, milky and makes great comfort food, we have ours with different things depending on what we fancy or what's in the cupboard. If we are having just semolina on its own I just add sugar, once again I do this by taste, how much you put in is down to personal preference.
Whitworths semolina is lovely with fruit in it or if I have made biscuits we have a couple of these with it, sometimes I break up a bar of chocolate and melt it through the semolina and if I am wanting a richer flavour I swirl double cream through it.
If you eat semolina then I would certainly recommend Whitworths, a 500g box from Tesco costs 98p and in my opinion its worth every penny.
