I made it in the rice cooker, but I used the recipe from a rice cooker cookbook.
I think it would work. Will have to play with it, Alton has a CP recipe: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/a...ipe/index.html , but I like your ingredients better. Definitely vanilla, not lemon peel!

Haven't made real Tapioca Pudding for years.

Love the stuff.

Thanks for the reminder PF.

Dad always called it Fish Eyes & Glue.

Guess it's time to get busy.

I had no sticking at all with the milk. When I used a silicone spatula to scrape the pudding out of the double boiler pan, it came out clean as a whistle.

I think you have more patience than me. I get distracted and forget to keep an eye on the milk or something else happens and it gets just that little bit too hot and I end up with milk scum stuck to my pot. In the MW, even if you have a boil over, the milk doesn't stick.

Don't know how patient I am, but I really didn't babysit the milk while it was heating. In fact, most of the time it was warming I was cleaning our bathroom. I just turned the flame on its lowest setting and let the simmering water do its thing.

Glenn is gone today. He's helping his son with some garage construction and dirt work and if he doesn't get home at a reasonable time, there won't be any pudding left for him to eat.
It is excellent! Thanks, Katie! It's quite good with fruit, too!

I thought it was easy clean-up, too. I managed to watch a movie while cooking this. Love the double boiler, it was a rush job I did, so I didn't get a chance to soak the tapioca over night. I soaked it in hot water from the Keurig for an hour before starting in the rest of the recipe.

Real Tapioca Pudding This is the lazy way, I do not separate the eggs and whip the egg whites to soft peaks. 1/2 cup small pearl tapioca - not instant 2 1/2 cup milk 1/4 tsp salt 1/2 cup sugar 2 eggs 1 tsp vanilla extract Soak tapioca in 2 cups water overnight. Drain water. In double boiler, heat milk just until lukewarm. Add salt and tapioca, stir. Heat until it begins to bubble around the sides of the pan. Cover, reduce heat to low, do not allow to boil or simmer, cook 1 hr. Beat eggs, vanilla and sugar together. Remove top of double boiler from heat. Temper the egg mixture with a little of the hot milk mixture, stirring constantly. Add tempered egg mixture to hot milk, stirring constantly. Place double boiler over medium heat, cook until mixture is thick - approximately 15 min. Pour into a chilled bowl, cover top with plastic wrap or place a piece of parchment paper on the top so a skin doesn't form. Serve warm or chilled. Makes 6 to 8 servings. Tapioca can be found in whole food type stores in bulk bins or you can purchase the Reese's Brand, found on the top shelves of some stores about the pudding mixes. Amazon also sells it in Large or Small Pearl. 3 stars 1 reviews
