Coconut Tapioca with Slow Roasted Spiced Pineapple

IMG_2152This one was a little rough…I wasn’t sure who of my tasters was really going to like this one and it took me going to three stores to find the pearl tapioca.  In the end, they only had small pearl tapioca so I went with that.  Since Dorie suggested serving this with the spiced pineapple I went ahead and made that as well. IMG_2141 The tapioca was interesting looking…it reminded me of frozen ice cream balls you can get haha…I would have much preferred the ice cream! My family isn’t big tapioca fans, but my husband did try it and said it tasted like it was suppose to, but he still didn’t care for it much.  He thought the pineapple tasted like canned peaches…not sure what to make of that observation!!…maybe it was the color and the sweetness haha!  My mom doesn’t like it but my dad tried it and texted me back…”Can’t say I am a fan of the tapioca but the pineapple was outstanding.” So I was feeling  not so confident on this one as I sent it off to my last taster…although she told me she loves tapioca so I had a little hope haha! She is the true spirit of a taster.  I told her I wasn’t too sure about this one and her reply was:

” I always like the fact that I would never have the opportunity to taste most of the desserts and dishes otherwise and 99.9% of them have been fantastic!! It’s all about the experience, the wow is always a bonus”

Don’t you just love that??!! She actually loved both…yay!  I am guessing if you like tapioca this is a good recipe, for those of us who don’t…it doesn’t change your mind. 🙂

    • I wish I had known that Linda…I would have sent some over!! My in-laws loved it too!! I guess if you like tapioca, this was a great recipe…for the rest of us…not so much haha!

  1. Your taster has a great attitude! My hubby and kids are usually pretty open to trying new things……and also highly critical…I was surprised they all liked this
