Tapioca Pearls for Bubble Tea

3 oz. dry tapioca pearls
2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
Boiling water

Add tapioca pearls and half of the sugar to boiling water in a
large bowl. Stir quickly to separate pearls and dissolve sugar
completely. Let stand for 3 hours or until pearls are soft on the
outside and pasty in the center when squeezed between thumb and
index finger. If stirring them makes the water really cloudy, they
have been oversoaked.

Drain tapioca pearls, retaining the water. Put water and remaining
sugar in saucepan and bring to a boil. Add soaked tapioca pearls
and lower heat to medium-high. Simmer, taking a pearl out every
minute and eating it. You have to sample it in order to see how
cooked it is as every tapioca pearl brand has a different cooking
time. The cooking time ranges from 1 minute to even 10 minutes.
The pearls are done when the outside is soft, and the center is
chewy. Put cold water in a bowl; drain pearls and put into cold
water to stop cooking.

Yields about 1/4 to 1/2 cup, depending on the size of the pearls.

NOTE: If you don't keep the pearls in the water, they'll dry out
and turn inedible. However, keeping them in water overnight turns
them into mush, so eat them as soon as possible.
