  • To make the pudding

  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • dash salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  1. Cover the tapioca pearls with cold water. Let soak overnight or until doubled in size.
  2. Drain well and add to the top of a double boiler.
  3. Put water in bottom pan. Bring to a boil. Turn down slightly.
  4. Add the milk, salt and sugar to the tapioca in double boiler. Stir to combine. Let cook for about 20 minutes or until you see the tapioca pearls start to get translucent.
  5. Separate the eggs. Add the egg yolks to a small bowl. Beat with a fork. Add a little of the hot tapioca a tablespoon at a time to temper the egg yolks. Stir into the tapioca mixture. Stir the tapioca over the boiling water for about 5 minutes while it thickens.
