Pink Tapioca Pearls

  1. In a medium sized bowl combine the tapioca starch and boiling water, stir until just combined then knead until smooth

  3. Roll the dough into small balls, dusting with cornstarch as you go to prevent sticking
  4. To cook place balls in a large pot of boiling water, cook until they float to the surface, then turn off heat and leave for 5 minutes (if you like them softer you can cook them for longer)
  5. Drain and place in the strawberry/lime syrup
