Tapioca is relatively new to Sicily. It is now available in organic food shops, either in flour form or pearl tapioca. Here is my version of tapioca pudding.
The ingredients are 3 Ts tapioca pearls, 2 Ts brown sugar, 500 ml milk, 2 eggs, separated. Soak the tapioca in a bit of water for about 1 hour, then add the milk and boil until it thickens. Add about 2 T of brown sugar.Whip the egg whites. Beat the egg yolks and add them to the tapioca pudding. Then add the egg whites. Cook for several more minutes.
You can serve it either hot or cold. I like it hot!
