Tapioca Pearls:

Place water in large pot and bring to a boil. Add tapioca pearls; tapioca will float in the water. Cover and boil for 25 minutes. Remove one pearl; cut in half to check if tapioca is cooked through. If center of tapioca is still mealy, continue cooking and check every 5 minutes. When tapioca pearls are thoroughly cooked, turn heat off, cover pan and let tapioca sit in water for 25 minutes. Rinse the cooked tapioca pearls in warm water; drain well.
