We ducks and humans love tapioca. But sometimes we forget to buy it at the grocery store. But we will be enjoying some tapioca today! Today, July 15, is National Tapioca Pudding Day. According to http://www.NationalDayCalendar.com tapioca is a starch made from the cassava root. Wow! Last summer when we were in Malawi the people ate cassava almost every day. But to make tapioca, the edible root is ground into a powder or a pearly extract. The resulting pearls are called tapioca.
We hope you also enjoy some tapioca pudding today.
