In another thread Lizard said that tapioca pudding is horrible. This got me thinking as I've never had this delight. So, I found out that tapioca is the starch extracted form cassava (or yuca) and can be made to "bind" practically anything under the sun together. In the same thread David said that this pudding is the food of the gods. I'm going to get some of this fabled starch and see if it can make a treat equal to or better than my fabled Martian Delight . Stay tuned.

I followed a tapioca pudding recie that I found at random the net and cooked away, waiting for the horrors Lizard promised. Didn't work; I used orange juice for the liquid part and pear and orange sections for the "solid" part and only added some sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon. The whole mass was cooked until the starch was ready to set ( a bit of lemon juice at this point). It has now set and tastes, well, like a compote done in a hurry. How did I miss the "vileness"????

I haven't actually eaten tapoica since it was served as a dessert in primary school but I have very fond memories of it. I think it was prepared in the same manner way they cooked rice pudding or sago to produce a hot sticky sweet milky pudding that wouldn't fall out of a bowl if held upside down.

These flavours sound good. But but but... what was the texture of this "ambrosia" MEF? If it was like lumpy blanc mange, then it is vile.

Surely you noticed the red flashing sign telling you to make sure your name was filled in? That flashing sign is an indication that your login did not take.

Sorry that you are having trouble with this....

This quick cook tapioca did leave tiny white lumps of starch. I can think of at least 1000 better thickeners. So, good bye tapioca, hello sweet potato starch!
