Fruit tapioca with sauce.

Top Review by Gary Myer

I was planning to use the vanilla sauce just over a strawberry-rhubarb compote I had found elsewhere on this site, but then I noticed that the directions do not tell me what to do with the beaten egg and 2 Tbsp. water (the last two ingredients). "Reheat, [should it read 'swirl in the and water mixture into the'] vanilla sauce and stir" ? Hope you can correct this oversight!
