Last weekend was spent at the Javits Convention Center in New York, eating my way down the aisles of the
Sweet & Sour Tamarind and Sweet Tamarind
Sweet & Sour dried Tamarind is nature’s answer to Sour Patch Kids. Shelled, pitted, baked twice, then sprinkled with brown sugar and Thai chili, it tingles your tongue, stunning it with a tart zing, then it rounds off with a spicy kick at the end, leaving your mouth slightly numb and wanting more. I must confess I didn’t get the chance to try the Sweet Tamarind, but I’m curious to know how to prepare it, any ideas?
