“My uncle was a torturer of young children. He was in high school when my brothers and cousins and I were in grammar school. He would tell us that tapioca pudding was made from frog's eyes and none of us would eat it so he ate the entire bowl himself. He also told us that Jell-o was made from pony bones to scare us from eating it. So here is the version of instant tapioca pudding my mother and grandmother would make which is adapted from the Kraft Minute Tapioca box- Frog's eyes are optional.”
