How to cook the tapiocas?

When cooking the tapioca, make sure to stir constantly so it does not stick onto the bottom of the pan and do not overcook as it will melt. The key is to cook it at a high temperature for the first 5 minutes then turn off the heat and let it sit. Once they all turn transparent, it’s ready!

Does it matter what fruits to use?

No it does not. You can eat this with any type of fruit you have.
