Tapioca Fluff Pudding

This is Tapioca at it's very best! Light & Fluffy not heavy or gluey like the stuff you can buy from those famous pudding makers that they have already prepared. Oh No not like that at all. This is light as air with the fluffy air like quality that comes from the beaten egg whites. This is the taste of olden days when you had dinner at Grandma's on a Sunday. Yeah, that kind of good! This pudding is great for a meal that is on the heavy side but you still want that bite of dessert afterwards. This is not hard to make & the pleasure from eating it is worth the steps you take to get there! TAPIOCA IT UP FOODIES!
4 Cups Milk
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/3 Cup Tapioca ( I used Granulated NOT INSTANT)
Dash of Salt
3 Beaten Egg Yolks
3 Beaten Egg Whites Beaten stiff
1 TBS Vanilla
Stir milk, sugar, salt & tapioca together & let sit about 5 minutes. Do this in the pot you are going to cook the pudding. Once this has sat 5 minutes beat your egg yolks & stir them into the above mixture. Turn on burner to low temp. & stir & cook about 5 minutes. Turn heart up to medium & stir & cook about 5 minutes more. Now turn heat up to medium high & stir & cook until tapioca is bubbly & slightly thick. Once you reach this stage remove from heat & stir in the vanilla.
     This is how your tapioca should look after the cooking stage.
Now let the mixture sit aside off the heat & beat your egg whites until stiff. Place about 1 cup in a deep bowl & add about 2 cups of the hot pudding mixture FOLDING in the egg whites. Now add the rest of the pudding mixture & the remaining egg whites & fold in gently until they are thoroughly mixed. You want small fluffy bits of egg white through  the pudding to give it airy texture.
This is still the folding stage. Keep folding until your pudding looks like the picture below.
  Now you have a GREAT TAPIOCA PUDDING that Grandma would have served to her SPECIAL guest like YOU! Try making some Tapioca you will be GLAD you DID!
