Sago is an edible starch that is made from the pith of an array of tropical palm trees. Raw sago has a pure and lovely white colour and cooked sago presents a lovely transparent colour
The cooked pearls on their own are chewy but relatively flavourless. They become much sweeter after being soaked in simple syrups or adding fruits to whatever you’ve chosen to make with them. The pearls are more there for texture.
Sago pearls are commonly used in dessert dishes. They're often boiled with water or milk and sugar to make desserts like sago pudding. Sago can be eaten mixed with water, used as a flour in baking, or as a thickener.
