Today's winner is: ANDREA STOUT, 11, East Orem, Utah The tapicoa pudding you enjoy so much has a very interesting source. It comes from the roots of a large shrub that grows in the warm countries of the world. The shrub is called "manioc" or "cassava". The roots of the manioc plant contain about one-third starch and two-thirds water. They also contain prussic acid, which is a poison. This poison is removed by peeling the root and th'en by soaking them or cooking them. To make tapioca, the roots are grated. The gra'ed root is mixed well with very clean water, and then left to stand. The pure starch grains slowly settle to the bottom. The starch is then taken out and mixed with clean water again and the process is repeated four or five times. When the starch is perfectly clean it is spread on a metal plate and cooked over the fire. As the starch grains cook they stick together to form little balls. After the pure starch is cooked it is called tapicoa. In the United States and Em-ope tapioca is used to make pudding or two thicken soups and sauces. Pure manioc starch that has not been cooked is known as tapicoa flour. It is used to give a finish to cotton cloth, to make adhesives such as are used on postage stamps. It is often mixed with other foods in such products as breakfast cereals and fish food. FUN TIME The Riddle Bos 1. On what side of a cup should the handle be placed 0 2.
