How to prepare
Place the semolina, butter and pine nuts in a pan,.
Constantly stir on a medium low heat until the mixture is a golden brown colour.
In a separate pan, mix the syrup ingredients and bring up to a boil.
Very slowly pour the syrup into the semolina mixture stirring with a long wooden spoon.
The mixture will be bubble and spit so take care when doing this.
Keep stirring for several minutes until the mixture becomes doughy.
