Tamarind

I can’t believe I had never had Tamarind before. I mean, I’ve had tamarind sauces, candies, juices…etc, but I had never had raw Tamarind. I grew up going to a farm where my dad used to grow it. I guess it was because of the color and my picky-ness as a child that I never cared to try it. Now, I realize its a delicate combination between sweet and sour, soft and chewy sensation. It melts in your mouth….Go get some if you’ve never had it!

These I found them in the Chelsea Market

Today, I discovered there really is no point in eating chocolate, if you can have these natural beauties! (lets see how long this lasts….)

  1. Love tamarinds. Have some in my refrigerator now. A friend introduced me to the sweet ones but I prefer the sour ones. Tamarinds must be sour, right?

  2. You’re welcome Milena!
    Just re-read your post. I can’t believe you never had raw tamarinds. I grew up on that stuff. When I left home I discovered the paste.
    Thanks for offering to read my blog http://insidejourneys.com. Let me know what you think!
