Raisin Tapioca

Tapioca is a thing every child should learn to use, as it is capable of

so many variations. For the simplest pudding, have her first cover

three-quarters of a cup of tapioca, (or sago, either), with one cupful

of cold water and allow to soak at least an hour. Then add three cupfuls

of boiling water, one-half teaspoonful salt, the flavoring and sugar to

taste, and boil until transparent. If the family like lemon, let her add

the strained juice and grated rind of one lemon and one-half cupful of

sugar. Or, she can use a level cupful of raisins, the juice and grated

rind of half a lemon and cupful of sugar. (The raisins should be seeded,

of course.)
