6 cups milk 3/4 cup sugar 3/4 cup tapioca (small or large pearl) 1 egg 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Pour milk into slow cooker and turn onto HIGH. Add sugar and stir until dissolved. Add tapioca, stir, and cover with lid. Cook for 2-3 hours until tapioca is tender. (Large pearl may take an hour longer—pearls should be translucent and clear when done.)
In a small bowl, beat egg and vanilla with a whisk. Add 1 cup of the hot cooked milk/tapioca to this egg mixture, stirring well. Then pour this mixture into the slow cooker and stir. Cover with lid and cook for a final 20 minutes. Remove lid, pour pudding into serving bowl and chill.

My husband loves tapioca pudding so I frequently purchase it from the deli or have made the instant stuff which is not nearly as good as this ---- it was so EASY and turned out wonderful. I will be able to make 3 times as much from one bag of pearls than what I paid to purchase from the deli -
everyone should give it a try.
thanks - I love this recipe!
