Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

the ingredients are correct. be sure fruit is drained well. br /I use the juice to make a syrup.br /Sounds like you need to cook it more. it must come to a full rolling boil, not just to boiling may take up to 20 min if not using minute tapioca.

I never have any luck making good tapioca pudding. My husband loves it with pineapple as that is how his mother made it and it always is soupy for me. I do not know what I do incorrectly.

Try it with Jello Cook and Serve Tapioca,,,, works well.

Did anyone tryed to enter 4 tablespoons of tapioca,insted of 3 ???

Too soupy

Wow. For some reason it came out soupy. Like there is too much liquid. Are the portions correct?
