What is it?
Tamarind is actually a tree that produces a pod-like fruit, which contains a few seeds and a sticky, fleshy, tart, brownish pulp. The tamarind tree commonly grows in warm, tropical regions, and while it is considered to have originated in Africa, it is now grown in many parts of the world. Tamarind is very frequently used for flavoring in Middle Eastern and Asian cooking, especially in India and Thailand. In terms of how itís consumed, the tamarind pulp is very strong, so it is oftentimes diluted or mixed with sugar to temper that tartness.

Tamarind pulp is actually quite versatile, as it can be used to make all sorts of beverages, jams, candies, sauces, and syrups for desserts, in addition to its flavoring power.

Now that you have an idea of what tamarind actually is, and how itís used all over the world, you may be interested in seeing how it pairs with shaved ice and snow cones.
