This was the best recipe for pearl tapioca that I've found. Delicious! I didn't stir quite as often as I should have so my pearl tapioca stuck together but that was my fault. This is a great recipe. Thank you,Ruth, for sharing it.

We love tapioca pudding, but I don't like standing, stirring and watching it like a traditional recipe calls for. And then sometimes it just does not turn out. This recipe is terrific! Easier than easy, great consistency and so tasty! Thank you, Ruth!
