Classic Old Fashioned Tapioca Pudding
Soak small pearl tapioca in water for 30 minutes in a 1 1/2 quart saucepan. Do not drain tapioca after soaking. Add milk, salt, 1/4 cup of sugar and lightly beaten egg yolks to tapioca and stir over medium heat until boiling. Simmer uncovered over very low heat for 10-15 minutes. Stir often. Beat egg whites with sugar until soft peaks form. Fold about 3/4 cup of hot tapioca into the egg whites, then gently fold mixture back into saucepan. Stir over low heat for about 3 minutes. Cool 15 minutes then add vanilla. Serve warm or chilled, plain or with nutmeg or coconut mixed in. Makes 3 1/2 cups.
