Semolina Flour
« on: March 08, 2007, 10:43:42 AM »
Is semolina flour something you can get in the grocery store ? I've never seen it in the flour section of my local WalMart supercenter grocery store but would like to try some in my crusts - not sure where to get it ?

Jon,

The answer in part will depend on what form of semolina you are looking for. In the U.S., most semolina flours are coarse whereas in Italy they can be quite fine. If the coarse variety is acceptable for your application, then there are many Italian and other specialty stores that carry semolina flour. I have seen it in the flour bins at my local Whole Foods but they often also carry the Bob’s Red Mill brand in a bag, such as shown here:
