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).

“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. ”

“I ordered two sizes of tapioca pearls - and they are great. The candied ginger is for my grandson who arrived from Afghanistan today - just as the postman delivered your package! He was thrilled to say the least, and carried his ginger away for his first night on USA soil. He was a medic in the army, but has now done his time. He's a fine man (25) and will begin his college in Arizona for helicopter training this fall. Thanks for your good site. Martha”

“I love tapioca and had been searching "high 'n low" for tapioca pearls. I discovered I ordered the product on a Thursday afternoon and I received it the next day! Unbelievable! Can't wait to make tapioca. Thanks you nut jobs. :-)”

“In my search for large pearl tapioca, I came upon your site. As a little girl, I called it "mothball pudding" and my grandmother always had a batch on the stove when I would come for a visit. Made a batch today using Grandma's receipe, mmmm! When I was in the midwest a few years back, I bought a case to bring home as it is extremely hard to find and made only a batch or 2 a year to make it last. Now I will indulge more frequenly. Loved the other products (dried figs & dates and walnut fudge) as well. I live at a high altitude and making old fashioned home made fudge isn't successful most of the time. Wow glad I found you! Gift ideas as well as good pricing! I think that I'm NUTS about you!”

“I have watched the stores for years and years. Every once in while I can find this large tapioca, but rarely. I am so thrilled to have found your site. I love it. The shipment only took about a week, and I can't wait to get my tapioca soaking. ”

“Oh My, Thank you soooooo much!
I went looking for large pearl tapioca...found your site....WOW!!! I thought it was too good to be true... not only tapioca but all sorts of essentials!!! Arrowroot! Pectin by the pound! ALMOND FLOUR!! Flours and berries and nuts oh my!! Too good to be true but in ONE NEW YORK MINUTE my order was at my front door! I can't sing your praises loud enough! It has not been even 24 hours since arrival and I have a big batch of tapioca cooling, raspberry bars with Almond flour crumb crust in oven and home made cranberry sauce (thanks to the arrowroot) simmering on stove! THANK YOU.... I think you are my new FAVORITE "GO TO" PLACE!
