Tapioca....

What is it?

This is almost a word for Wednesday.

We've probably all eaten tapioca pudding but do you know what it is? Where it comes from...?

My hubby thought it might just be gelatin, like a jello mixture. But no, that's not what it is.

Tapioca comes from the root of a plant. It makes a starchy substance that can be used in different formats and one of those formats in round little balls of the starchy substance, or Tapioca balls.

And it makes wonderful pudding.

So there you have it. That's what tapioca is.

All I know is, I had a lot of it while in Hawaii for two weeks. It's big there. :)

Back when I tried to make this, I read that it was poisonous if not prepared correctly. Then funny thing, I heard it on a sitcom right after that.
