Anyway, this week's maple recipes look so good. They come from the Alice Bradley Menu-Cook-Book from 1944. I want to try both of these - Maple Tapioca Cream and Maple Sugar Diamonds. I love tapioca, and this recipe looks amazing. Since I'm used to rich, thick, creamy modern tapioca, I'm not a fan of the vintage tapioca with beaten egg whites mixed in. It's just a weird, fluffy texture. So, when I make it, I might just leave that out.
The Maple Sugar Diamonds look really intriguing, especially with the combination of ginger and maple. This recipe might be a good one to make with my kids. I bought some maple sugar, so I'm all set! I'll post pictures when I get these made!
