60 gr. dried cranberries

One whole lemon peel
One cinnamon stick
cinnamon, powdered, for serving


Step 1

In a deep pot (it is important that it is deep), pour the extra virgin olive oil with semolina, cocoa, almonds, and cranberries, and mix it with a wooden spoon for 7-8 minutes.

Step 2

In another small pot, boil the sugar, water, lemon peel, and cinnamon stick until they become syrup.

Step 3

As soon as the semolina is roasted and hot, pour the syrup and stir constantly until it thickens and the halva comes off the sides of the pot.

Step 4

Then, put the halva in a form, press it down well, and let it cool for 15 minutes. Unmould on a plate, sprinkle with a little cinnamon, and serve.
