Old fashioned large pearl tapioca. Use to make an old fashioned tapioca pudding like Grandma used to make!

Size #40, 1/5" diameter

Soak 1/2 cup tapioca in water overnight in a 1-1/2 quart saucepan. Add milk, salt and lightly beaten egg yolks to tapioca and stir over medium heat until boiling. Simmer uncovered over very low heat for 10-15 minutes. Stir often. Beat egg whites with sugar until soft peaks form. Fold about 3/4 cup of hot tapioca into the egg whites, then gently fold mixture back into saucepan. Stir over low heat for about 3 minutes. Cool 15 minutes then add vanilla. Serve warm or chilled, plain or with fruits, nutmeg or coconut mixed in. Makes 3-1/2 cups (4 servings).

“Love love love your packaging! The outside of the box was as much fun as what was inside will be. My hubby has been wanting some good old fashioned large pearl tapioca for ever, and thanks to you he will have some tomorrow. It's soaking as we type and I'll cook it up tomorrow. The speedy delivery, and customer follow up is amazing! I'll let you know how the tapioca turns out and I'm sure I'll be ordering some other things from you soon. Thank you!!!”

“Ordered my tapioca and was pleasantly surprised at how fast it arrived. My wife and I laughed our asses off at all the cool box decorations. Keep up the great work. When I get all kinds of fat from eating 25# of pudding, I'll for sure be ordering more. Have a great day to you all.”

“The shipment arrived safely and in good condition. Thank you for stocking tapioca. It is not available in my area in any form other than instant. The bubble tea was a hit at the Halloween Party.”

“I have tried for over 5 years to find large pearl tapioca with no luck. Thanks to you, I will once again be able to enjoy one of my favorite things.”

“I just received my first order from you, and it was delivered quickly as promised. My grandfather and I made homemade tapioca pudding since I was very young. I have carried on the tradition, but could no longer find the large pearl tapioca in stores. Thank God for your site. It's exactly what I needed and now I can keep the tradition going. Plus I love the taste and texture of the pudding. I'll be making it tomorrow. Thank you so much for you great service and very reasonable prices. I will certainly be shopping with you very soon. ”
