1/2 Cup Tapioca Pearls
1 1/2 Cups Milk
1 1/2 Cups Heavy Cream
1 Fresh Vanilla Bean
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 pinch Salt
2 Egg Yolks
Soak the pearls in water overnight, covered well with water.
Drain the water off. Heat the milk, cream, vanilla bean
(split and scraped), and tapioca to a slow simmer in a heavy
pot and cook for 1 hour, stirring often. Add the sugar and salt.
Bring to a simmer being careful not to let the tapioca
stick to the bottom of the pan.
Put the yolks into a bowl and stir
in some of the tapioca mixture to equalize
the temperature. Add to the pan while stirring.
Pour into a bowl and cool.
