Top Review by Evie3234

The only tapioca we can buy here is the big pearl size kind, After talking to Lennie I found out she meant the quick cooking kind. The rhubarb and pineapple however were delicious. One day when I can get back 'home' Im filling my case with the things we cant get here! and will make this again, I love tapioca.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a saucepan, combine tapioca, sugar, salt, rhubarb and water.
  2. Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil, stirring often; let bubble until the sauce thickens and the rhubarb becomes tender.
  3. Remove from heat and let cool (mixture thickens as it cools).
  4. Add pineapple with its juice, stir, then chill mixture.
  5. Traditionally served on its own with a whipped cream topping, but you can even serve it as a sauce over ice cream.
