No adventurous cook is without err. I’m no perfect chef and this failed experiment is a good example.
When I mess up a recipe and I know it is beyond saving I tend to revert to being a small child wreaking havok in the kitchen.
The goal was to make boba tea. I couldn’t find the huge tapioca pearls so I did the best I could with these medium sized pearls.
I didn’t add enough water and the pearls almost instantly starting turning the water to pudding.
I figured I would just make it into some weird pudding.
I added lemon extract, sugar, and yellow & blue food coloring. As you can see, this did not make it any more edible.
When I tried to make real tapioca pudding I kinda failed too. I tried to make a coconut tapioca pudding–yes, I followed a recipe this time.
Only issue was that my pearls were undercooked. I didn’t think about soaking them or boiling them longer.
Will I ever get my desired result?
