We have a wonderful bulk foods store in Rochester (NY) that sells just about every kind of flour, dried fruit, nuts, and coconut that you can imagine. They had three kinds of tapioca! They do mail order if you'd like to give them a try. Niblack
This was a breeze to make and everyone enjoyed it. It reminded me that I enjoy making pudding, especially stirring and watching the chemical changes!
My family wondered about bonne idea possibilities. We decided that we could add coconut, drizzle on some chocolate, or use cherry liquer instead of vanilla and add dried cherries during the cooking so they would plump up. Anyone else have other ideas?
However, I think this was delicious on its own. Here's my little dish with a strawberry added for color! If you want to check out the posts of other Tuesdays with Dorie bakers, here's the link.
