DH’s Grandmother’s Apple Tapioca Pudding

DH’s grandmother’s apple tapioca pudding is perfect comfort food.


3/4 cup pearl or 1/2 cup minute tapioca 1/2 teaspoon salt
Cold water 7 sour apples
21/2 cups boiling water 1/2 cup sugar

Soak tapioca one hour in cold water to cover, drain, add boiling water and salt; cook in double boiler until transparent. Core and pare apples, arrange in buttered pudding-dish, fill cavities with sugar, pour over tapioca, and bake in moderate oven until apples are soft. Serve with sugar and cream or whipped cream. Minute Tapioca requires no soaking.

    Ummm … comfort food that it !! Looks beautiful, too!

    By the way, I have tagged you for the “old photo” game.
    Hope you can play along … would love to see some of your “old” photos.

    Drop by my site and see what it is all about.

    Hi Strawberry Lane,

    Thanks for tagging me. I’ll dig out some old pictures!

    I love puddings and custards…I am definitely “into” comfort food.

    omg, that looks absolutely wonderful!!! I would LOVE some of that this morning on this cold freezing drizzle day.

    Hi Barngoddess,

    Any warm dessert is a treat on a cold morning! I love using old recipes, too. (Although I usually add more sugar than used to be used when sugar was more dear.)

    I love tapioca but this looks absolutely sinful.

    Hi Rising Rainbow,

    It is, (and might lead to granny drawers). But on vacation, I’ve been eating a lot of fresh fruit and trying to NOT indulge too much.
