Fresh and Fruity Tapioca Parfaits. The lightly vanilla-scented tapioca is a perfect complement to the sweet, fresh fruit in this. Use any fruit jam and fresh fruits you like and assemble the parfaits just before serving.
In a medium pan, combine the Tapioca Pearls (1/3 cup) and Milk (1 cup). Leave the mixture to soak for 1 hour.
Separate the Egg (2) Yolks and set aside.
Add the remaining Milk (2 cup).
Add the Granulated Sugar (1/2 cup).
Add the Egg Yolks.
Add the Vanilla Extract (1 teaspoon) and Salt (1 dash).
Heat the mixture over medium heat and stir frequently until the mixture simmers. Reduce the heat to low and continue cooking until the pudding is thickened and the pearls are soft enough to eat, approximately 15 minutes.
Allow the mixture to cool on the stove for 15 minutes and then place in the fridge for 2 hours.
Place 2 tablespoons of the Fruit Jam (1/2 cup) in a ramekin.
Gently spoon in 2/3 cup tapioca pudding.
Top with 1/4 cup of the Fresh Blueberries (1 cup). Repeat steps 8-10 with the remaining 3 ramekins.
