    1       c            Tapioca -- small pearl
    1       qt           Whole cream
    2       c            Water
      1/4   ts           Salt
    1       c            Sugar -- brown
    4                    Eggs -- large
    3       ts           Vanilla -- madagascar bourbon
   soak tapioca in 2 cups cold water in refrigerator overnight. Drain and
   place in a large sauce pan with cream and 2 cups water. Bring to a boil,
   add sugar and vanilla slowly, stirring the whole time (it will get very
   thick very fast and lump if you don't)   Beat eggs to a froth, add to
   pudding mixture.  Simmer for 5 minutes (until eggs are set with the rest of
   the pudding) Chill overnight, warm each serving (microwave works best) and
   serve. This is a very rich pudding. Most people will not want very much,
   however they will savor each bite! If you do not chill the pudding
   overnight you are missing the chance to taste the best vanilla pudding you
   have ever allowed you pallet to enjoy. The vanilla called for in the recipe
   may be purchased through williams sonoma (direct or mail order) or may be
   replaced with any GOOD real vanilla extract such as found in many fine
   cooking stores. I have tried it with “american” vanilla extracts but keep
   returning to the madagascar.
