    Cindy Lynn's Note:

    This is in response to a post on the boards. It is our favorite Tapioca Pudding. It is time consuming, so DH doesn't get it very often...and when he does, it doesn't last long at all. In fact, if it's been a really long time, he'll eat it himself in one sitting...thank goodness the Chef has the opportunity to "taste test"! ;-)) Prep time does not include soaking pearls overnight.

      I was very pleased with this recipe which gave a light and creamy pudding. It is time consuming, but it gave me far better results than other recipes for Tapioca that I have tried. I plan to make it for company and will serve it in a stemmed desert dish with a dash of cinnamon and possibly a raspberry or blueberry garnish.

      This is good but time consuming. This was the first time I've made tapioca pudding and I must say it turned out great. It was worth the time put into it. Thanks for a great recipe~~my kids love you for it.
