Semolina Cranberry Cashew Balls

Semolina is made from durum wheat, a hard variety of wheat. Durum semolina is commonly used in the manufacturing of pasta because of its high gluten content, which gives the pasta its pleasant taste and ensures that it retains its shape during the cooking process.

I use Semolina very rarely as it is a refined food. Whole foods are always a better chice than  refined foods. Occasionally, I make these little sweet balls for the kids.
