Have you ever looked at a dish of lovely sweetness and known, beyond a doubt, that you would love it even before it touched your lips?

This is how I feel about tapioca pudding. I only recently had it for the first time despite knowing for eons that I would love it.

And I did.

I don’t know what possessed me to finally buy it but there I was a few weeks ago in the grocery store gently placing a bag of tapioca in my shopping cart.

While the calendar may say spring Mother Nature is saying something altogether different so this weekend I decided we needed a lovely creamy dessert to keep us warm and fuzzy (on the inside).

I pulled out my bag of tapioca and made the most beautiful pudding.

The recipe I used is from Bob’s Red Mill (maker of the tapioca I purchased).

When I served my pudding, I dolloped on a spoonful of a delicious Italian cherry jam that I am enjoying these days. So. Good.
