    A Year of Slow Cooking - Stephanie

    Recipe Introduction

    A Hernandez family favorite! So easy and delicious.

    List of Ingredients

    2 qts. milk, (half-gallon)
    1 1/2 cups white sugar
    1 cup small pearl tapioca, (can find at Asian market or "fancy" grocery store)
    3 eggs
    1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

    ------------------------------------------------------------ 1 and 1/2 RECIPE:

    *** Almost fills 7 qt. crockpot
    3 qts. milk
    1 1/2 + 3/4 cup white sugar
    1 1/2 cups small pearl tapioca
    4 1/2 eggs
    1 1/2 tsp. vanilla


    In 6 qt. crockpot, combine milk, sugar and tapioca pearls; Stir well to mix.
    Cover and cook on high 2-5 hours.
    * You're looking for tapioca to be soft and somewhat slimy. Will not be very thick, it's okay.

    Then in separate bowl, mix eggs with vanilla.
    Take 1/2 cup hot milk and tapioca mixture and whisk milk into egg bowl ("tempering the eggs").
    Add another 1/2 cup hot milk and tapioca and whisk into eggs, too.
    Then add yet another.
    Pour contents into crockpot and whisk until thoroughly combined.

    Cover and cook on high another 30-45 mins., or until tapioca is pudding-like in consistency.
    Unplug and let sit about an hour to cool. * Will thicken as it cools.

    Chill in refrigerator or eat with serving spoon, hot, right out of crockpot!
