Tasty Tuesday: Lemon Sago

A couple of weekends ago while up on the Tablelands we got to house sit overnight at the same farm from back here. It was quiet, peaceful and wet.

At this place there is a lemon tree next to the house that at the moment is overflowing with fruit. I love lemons, cooking with lemons and eating lemon flavoured foods and Mr Sparky loves Lemon Sago (so do I).

We already had sago or seed tapioca in the pantry and along with some lemons and other ingredients we were both pretty satisfied on the Lemon Sago front ... so satisfied I made it again.


1/2 cup sago
600ml water
4 tbsp sugar
4 tbsp golden syrup
Rind of 1/2 a lemon
Juice of 2 lemons


1. Place sago and water in saucepan and boil until transparent, stirring occasionally.

2. Remove from stove and add lemon juice, rind, sugar and syrup.

3. Mix well.

4. Pour into a mould/ bowl to set

5. Serve with custard or ice cream or just eat it solo.

I love my lemon sago by itself or with ice cream.
How do you like yours?
What is your favourite flavoured sago?

I love this recipe because it works ... and it has gotten the Mr Sparky tick of approval. When I suggested trying another recipe his very fast reply was 'I like that one, make it again.' Well that I can do in fact probably will do again, and again and again ... well at least until the lemons run out.

This recipe is from the Corner Country Cookbook from the Boulia, Bedourie and Birdsville ICPA.
Do you have any great sago recipes?

Note: It will seem like it will never happen but the sago will go transparent and usually pretty close to all at once. If a few bits aren't transparent it doesn't really matter they will just be a little chewy.
