Ingredients
  • 3 c water
  • 2 c granulated sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 3 whole cloves
  • 1 lemon (peel only)
  • 1/2 c butter
  • 1 c coarse semolina or farina
  • 4 tb pine nuts
  • 2 tb blanched, chopped almonds
  • 3 tb whole blanched almonds
Instructions

Combine the water, sugar, cinnamon stick, cloves, and lemon peel (or 1 tablespoon lemon juice) in a heavy saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil for 10 minutes, then cool. Meanwhile, slowly melt the butter in a heavy saucepan, and cook for several minutes, without browning. Stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, slowly add the semolina or farina. Cook over low heat until the mixture turns a golden chestnut color; do not brown. Add 2 tablespoons of the pine nuts and chopped almonds and continue cooking 1 more minute. Remove cinnamon stick, cloves, and peel from the cooled syrup. Gradually add the syrup to the semolina mixture, stirring with a long-handled wooden spoon; the mixture will bubble furiously. Cook over the lowest possible heat until the syrup has been absorbed and the mixture thickens. Remove from the heat and drape with a clean towel for 10 minutes. Turn into a mold, spreading with a knife or a spatula. Cool, then reverse onto a serving platter, sprinkle with cinnamon, and garnish decoratively with the remaining pine nuts and the whole almonds. Cut into small, diamond-shaped pieces.
