How to Cook Boba (Tapioca Pearls)

Boba is really easy to make at home. All you do is cook the tapioca pearls in boiling water for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent them from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Then, turn the heat off and let the pearls sit in the hot water for another 20-25 minutes. Drain the pearls through a fine mesh sieve and return to the saucepan.

Then, make the brown sugar syrup by adding it to the saucepan with a little water. Stir well and heat over medium heat until the sugar dissolves and the syrup starts to thicken a bit, about 2-3 minutes. When the pearls are fully cooked through, they should be soft and chewy.
