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).

“This is my second order of giant tapioca and I couldn't be happier! My dad used to call them "frog's eyes" and they were such a treat to me growing up. When he died at 98, I looked EVERYWHERE for the stuff and after many many searches online, I found YOU!!!
My family LOVES TAPIOCA and especially these "frog's eyes"! A tradition I can pass on to my grandkids thanks to you!
AND IT WAS DELIVERED SO FAST!!! It was as if I just hit the enter key for the order and there it was at my door!!!

“I am a rising Pastry Chef facing a practical test in one of my favorite classes. We had to come up with two plated desserts that show we can think outside of the box. I needed large pearl tapioca that I plan on coloring to appear to be similar to salmon roe. I called all around and the only place I found that carried it was an Asian mkt. and they only sold large quantities. You all not only carry it in the size I need, it was shipped lightning fast. I also love the e-mails I received to let me know what was happening with the funny and witty.
Thank you so much. I certainly plan on bookmarking the site!

“Today I received my order of Turkish figs and pearl tapioca. The figs are delicious, and taste like the ones I remember from childhood. The tapioca is a nice size and look perfect. Also included was a free gift of candied ginger, which it is the best I've ever tasted! Thanks so much, I'll be reordering from you on a regular basis.”

“I received the much desired Large Pearl Tapioca today. Many stores (at least where I'm at) do not carry this product anymore, and the ones that do price this like its a rare commodity. Yours was one of the least expensive I could find, easy to order and quickly shipped. I'm impressed and will order from you again. Thank you for your excellent service!”

“I love this recipe! It is so thick and creamy it was hard not to eat it straight from the pot. I served this up with peaches from the neighbors farm and everybody loved it. I love custard and tapioca pudding, but this may be my new favorite. Thanks for sharing!”

“Thank you for such fast service! I was so pleased to find these hard to find items. The large pearl tapioca brings me back to my childhood and I can't wait to share the chips with my family at the reunion!
Thanks for the memories!”
