    Chefiebig's Note:

    My husband and his parents love tapioca. Every time they visit I make a batch. Large pearl tapioca can be hard to find in a grocery store (it's one of those time consuming things to cook) but I find them in Asian grocery stores.

      I love tapioca, but usually use instant in order to avoid the soaking time. When I want it, I want it now! This is a great recipe that requires no soaking.<br/><br/>If you use a double boiler, why would you need to stir constantly? I just put it in a pot and stirred frequently and it was dandy with just the right tapioca lumpiness. Tapioca is not a gourmet dish! I'm making this again today with 1/2 the sugar. It's way too sweet as is, and if I need it sweeter when I eat it, I'll add a dollop of blackberry jam. Yummy.

      Excellent recipe but even with half the sugar it was still too sweet.

      Great recipe. Would make again. <br/><br/>I would modify a few things though next time:<br/>1) Add slightly less sugar...maybe use 3/4 cup. It does seem a bit sweet and I even have a sweet tooth!<br/>2) I would cool my tapioca mixture slightly before folding in egg whites on the last step.....I chucked it all together right after taking it off the stove and I think it cooked the whites a bit and made it it would....I should have known better.
