    My hubby and kid loves this stuff. Be sure to soak it overnight before cooking. Some of the pearls crack and fall apart but the majority hold their form once you don't overcook and overstir them. My go to recipe is milk, condensed milk, nutmeg and cinnamon. For a pudding consistency I add eggs.

    I wanted the tapioca to make an old time pudding. It was perfect to my taste. Need to be careful not to over cook as this tends to make it gelatinous.

    These are nice tapioca pearls, but they are made in a facility that also process tree nuts, which is not good in our family. I wish this would have been stated in the picture or the description.

    These large pearls make the best tapioca, just make sure to soak in vanilla bean, milk or milk/ cream mixture for at least several hours or overnight.

    These Tapioca Pearls were exactly what I was wanting. They are large and delicious. I haven't been able to find anything like this in the town where I live. Thank you for having and making this product available through Hoosier Hill Farm.

    I was very pleased with the price, quality, and shipping of these Hoosier Farms tapioca pearls. These were the size and firmness I wanted for pudding.Apparently, I learned to make tapioca incorrectly, because we never pre-soaked the pearls in water. However, when these arrived, I did follow the instructions and soaked the pearls in water for 2 hours before making pudding. The overall pudding was much firmer, but the pearls were massively gooier. Soaking the pearls really releases the starch. It was not a hit with the family. I'll be going back to making it the wrong way. I will definitely buy these pearls again though!

    It reminded me of my childhood and my grandmothers tapioca. It was so fresh. I must get more as my family insisted that I make more.
