Try stirring the pot as it boils, they really shouldn’t stick.

Thanks for trying the recipe!

By: Meilin Tue, 25 Mar 2008 01:37:37 +0000 Hi Jaden!

I tried this tapioca recipe and it was delicious! (I used different fruit just due to what we had on hand.) I’m trying hard not to eat the leftovers all myself. :-)

I have a couple questions though. It ended up with a lot higher soup to pearls ratio than I expected though. Mine seems to be mostly soup with a few pearls floating in it. Is that correct? Also, my pearls all stick together even though I rinsed them until cold. Is there a fix for this? Or am I just using inferior pearls?

Thanks for a yummy recipe!

Actually, I don’t even know how to cook. I just like to read your column. It looks like you are moving to the Tampa Tribune. Sorry, I refuse to buy that conservative right wing paper. I will have to visit your Steamy Kitchen more often. Keep up the good work!

Congrats on the promotion to the Bigs (as far as local news goes).
You know what that means?


Free stuff and now you’ll more than likely write off your entire shopping list as ummmm, Research and Development.

Food, cookware, glassware, commercial range, glass front reefers, silverware.
Man, the list is endless… all in the name of R&D.

WTG Jaden !

By: Lynn Wed, 12 Mar 2008 15:52:02 +0000 Breaking up is hard to do. I hope CL takes it well and doesn’t leave a flaming bag of turds on your doorstep. I’m excited to see the next step in your career path.
