I used to make it, but have forgotten just how I did it. Think I used to soak it in the milk in the frig overnight, then cook it. Hope this will help you.

The Amish-Mennonite Tapioca Pudding on this website uses Baby pearl. I would think if you heated then soaked the larger overnight then made the recipe it would work.

* 6 cups boiling water
* 1 cup baby pearl tapioca
* 1 package un -flavored gelatin
* 3/4 cup sugar
* dash salt
* 1 cup whipped cream
* fruit, if desired


Bring water to a boil. Add tapioca, cover and cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until most of the balls are clear. Remove from heat and add gelatin and sugar. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Place in refrigerator overnight. Fold in whipped cream and fruit, if used. Serves 12 to 15.

Check the package. There will most likely be instructions and/or recipes there.

Thank you for all your help I made this the other day.
From recipes from internet to package and it turned out good.
I soaked a double recipe of pearls in water over night,drained and rinsed in morning and warmed on stove with milk,eggs and pearls and put it in a slow cooker and it was cooked in 2 hours on high.


then added vanilla at the end.
The most part was recipe from the package.
Thanks again to all.
