Slow-Cooked Coconut Tapioca
You can jazz this up by working the tropical angle and adding chopped banana or mango and maybe a little vanilla extract or some lime or something like that.
* Hang on -- I know what you're thinking. "Hey, Crabby, I can't find a hunk of creamed coconut anywhere!" Never fear! You may substitute a can of coconut milk for the 200g hunk of creamed coconut, but you'll probably want to reduce the water by half a cup or so.
Whatever you do, do not tell your children tapioca pearls are frog eyeballs. They are wee starchy balls made from cassava root!
