Old Fashioned Tapioca Pudding

I bought of tub of Tapioca pudding at Trader Joes and found out that my husband really really loves tapioca pudding. (really, I hardly got any) Since I don't have a TJ's near me, I went searching for a really good tapioca recipe, one that didn't use quick cooking tapioca. This one is delicious! We serve ours cold topped with a little fresh whipped cream. I found the tapioca pearls in the bulk section of my health foods store. Note that the tapioca pearls must soak overnight before you can prepare the pudding.
