    Lennie's Note:

    This old-fashioned tapioca pudding recipe is taken straight from "Foods, Nutrition and Home Management Manual", published in 1942 by the "Government of the Province of British Columbia". I've never made this type of tapioca, so the cooking time is a bit of a guess on my part. See note at end of recipe if you want to use quick-cooking tapioca.

      This is very good and light. It's sweet but not too sweet. Will make again.

      I used the rice cooker, worked great, put it on cook for the first 10 mins, then moved it to warm. I also 2* it and it worked great... I like the tapioca on the chewy side and it was. Thanks
