What to do with durum semolina flour

February 28, 2013 - 5:42am -- PastryPaul

Hey, All,

OK so in my last flour delivery, I got a 20kg bag of Durum Semolina flour by mistake. My supplier said to just keep it at no charge. Fine, but what the heck am I going to do with it???

I only use this stuff to make pasta at home. 20Kg is waaaay more pasta than I want or need.   I was about to just chuck it out when I thought of you guys/girls. Any ideas??

Thanks and Cheers

Thank you so much for your terrific formula: Pane con Semola Rimacinata di Grano Duro.  The only thing I did different than your formula was raise the hydration level to 68 percent.  I made 7.62 lbs of dough and divided it into two equal pieces of 3.81 lbs each, bulk fermented each in seperate containers, which minimized the handling of the dough during shaping. 


Here are some photos.
