Pat's notes for this recipe:
This is a great dessert and you will love that is is so easy to make from scratch.
This is the recipe from Kraft's quick cooking Minute Tapioca.
This can be made with fruit juice using the second recipe below. Your children will love it.
Just like grandma makes.

I have been looking for this recipe for years. My mother use to make an orange tapioca pudding that I loved as a child. Can't wait to try this on my husband and family. Will let you know how it turns out. Gayle
