Recipe type: Dessert
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6
Reserve the juice from your canned fruit, adding enough water to make 2¾ cup of liquid. I used water instead of with the leftover pineapple and orange juice that I had for this recipe because I was concerned that the acidic fruit juice would cause milk to curdle.
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 3 Tbl Tapioca (I used Minute Tapioca)
  • 2¾ cup juice from canned fruit (I added water to make enough)
  • 1 egg, well beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  1. With the burner turned off, mix the sugar, tapioca, juice and egg in a medium sauce pan and let stand 5 minutes.
  2. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture comes to a full rolling boil.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
  4. Pour into serving dishes and allow to cool.
  5. Mixture thickens more as it cools.
  6. Store leftovers in refrigerator.
