Tapioca with Cherries Made Simpler

Food - Tapioca with CherriesI wanted tapioca pudding but I started too late for the crock pot method I wrote about last February.  So I experimented and came up with a great way to do it!

I used:

1/2 C. tapioca pearls

3 raw sugar cones (could be maple syrup, or your favorite sweetener to taste, start with about 1/4 C. you can always add more at the end)

2 1/2 C. milk I concocted out of organic cream (1/2 C. organic cream and the rest water.)

I put these 3 simple ingredients into a small enameled cast iron pot on a small burner on the stove.  I brought it to a simmer on medium and then turned it down as low as it goes.  I stirred it about ever half hour, but it only took 2 hours and it was done.  Be careful with the heat.  Keep as low as you can throughout because milk products don’t do well over high heat, they are prone to curdle or separate.  The 2 hours was no big deal as I was doing other cooking and some computer work so it was fine to just sit there while I was busy with other things.

Then I used the Italian wild cherries I brought back from Italy in September as a topping.  Oh my.  That’s all I can say!  I think I will be ordering more of these cherries once they are gone.  I see Amazon has them now!  Or maybe I can justify another trip to Italy….
