  • ½ c white tapioca pearl
  • 10 c water


  • In a large pot, add 10 cups of water and bring to a boil.
  • When it’s a rolling boil, add tapioca pearls and lower to the medium heat.
  • Cover with a lid and cook for an additional two minutes.
  • Strain the pearls and run them under cold water to stop the cooking.
  • Taste-test the tapioca pearls and test if they're fully cooked through. They should be soft and chewy, but not crumble when you eat it.
  • Optional: when they’re done cooking you can choose to sweeten your pearls by adding sugar or honey on top and let sit for an additional 10 minutes.
