Tapioca Pudding

On Saturday with the rain and cold covering the city I got a hankering for some tapioca pudding. I do love puddings and this is one of my favorites. Once again I got the basic recipe from AllRecipes, but adjusted.

Tapioca Pudding

3 c Whole Milk
1/2 Quick Cooking Tapioca
1/2 c white sugar
1/4 Salt
2 Eggs, beaten
1 t Vanilla
1 small can crushed pineapple, drained

1 - Stir Together the milk, tapioca, sugar and salt in a medium saucepan.

Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low, cook and stir about 5 more mins.

2 - Whisk 1 cup of the hot milk mixture into the beaten eggs....

..... 2 tablespoons at a time until incorporated. Stir the egg mixture back into the tapioca until well mixed. Bring the pudding to a gentle simmer over medium-low heat cook and stir 2 more mins longer or until the pudding becomes thick enough to coat the back of the spoon. Remove from heat and add the vanilla and spices and the pineapple - stir until blended.

This can be served wither warm or cold.
