Strawberry Tapioca

From 1912:

Wash 1 cup of minute tapioca through several wafers and soak two hours. Then put over the fire with 1 pint boiling water, and simmer gently until the tapioca is perfectly clear.
Stir the berries, a quart of them, into the boiling tapioca, and sweeten to taste.
Take from the fire, turn into the dish in which they are to be served and set away to cool.
Serve cold with sugar and cream.
