Over the last few weeks I have been trying different, economical basic items in my quest to fine more ideas to use to keep my budget low if I need too! One of them was using Sago or Tapioca. I did find few recipes in old cookbook 'Off the Beaten Track' printed in 1916 and it's one those very early booklets with those WW1 soldier advertisements in it too!

So here a two of the recipes found.

Raisin Sago

2 tbsp. sago
2 tbsp. sugar
2 tbsp. raisin
4 tbsp. stale breadcrumbs
1/2 pint (10oz) milk
pinch salt

Wash sago and put to soak in milk for thirty minutes.
Add raisins, sugar, breadcrumbs and salt.
Mix thoroughly, turn into well-buttered mould and steam on hour.
Serve with cream or boiled custard.

Lemon Sago

2 tbsp. sago
2 tbsp. golden syrup
2 tsp. treacle
1 lemon
1 pint (20oz) water.

Wash sago; place in saucepan and pour over scant pint of water.
Cook till clear, remove from fire. (heat)
Add the grated rind and juice of juice of lemon, golden syrup and treacle; when cool, turn into glass dish.
Serve with cream or boiled custard.

    For those of us who don't know - I had to look this one up:

    "Sago - A powdery starch obtained from the trunks of certain sago palms and used in Asia as a food thickener and textile stiffener." ~American Heritage Dictionary at dictionary.com.

    I have done bit searching on website about product Pearl Sago / Tapioca.

    I am using the Pearl Sago / Tapioca, they are interchangable with each other. You get an instant powder form MINUTEĀ® Tapioca.
    The downsize is they a little high in calories and starch. It make a good filler. It's not something that you can cook and walk away from either.
    But the price is right as a filler.
