Apple Tapioca

1/2 cup granulated tapioca

1 1/2 pints or 3 cups water

2/3 cup sugar Fruit

Soak the tapioca in the water for thirty minutes and then cook it carefully in a double boiler until transparent; add the sugar; stir, and pour this over the apples that have been pared, cored, quartered and put in a baking-dish. Cover the dish and bake in a quick oven thirty minutes. Lift the lid just a moment until the tapioca crusts. Serve warm or cold with milk.

Peaches may be substituted for apples.

Orange Tapioca

3 oranges

1/2 cup granulated tapioca

3 cups or 1 1/2 pints water

1 cup sugar

Soak the tapioca in the water for thirty minutes; add the grated yellow rind of one orange. Cook until the tapioca is transparent; add the sugar; take from the fire and add the juice of two oranges and the pulp of one. Turn this into a glass dish and serve cold, with powdered sugar.

Strawberries may be substituted for oranges. They will be added to the mixture while hot, and allowed to stand until cold.

Sago may be substituted for tapioca.
