    I was excited to try this recipe b/c i love all the elements...unfortunately, even after following the recipe carefully, 8 hours later, i had a big bowl of fruit soup. The tapioca did NOT set up and wasn't even really visible. It had a good flavor, but was hard to eat b/c the juices were so thin. :(
