Random item of the week = tamarind

I bought tamarind paste this weekend. I’ve never needed it before (I don’t do much Thai cooking), but figured I’d take it home and figure out what to do with it.

I think I will make candy with it. Tamarind fruit jellies, perhaps?

  1. It also makes a good ingredient to use for marinating fish.

  2. You should do “Agua de Tamarindo” which is a very refreshing drink you can do with just plain water, a bit of suger and tamarind paste, you should drink it with a glass full of ice for a ver refreshing mexican drink… yum!

  3. Thanks for the great suggestions, guys! Can’t wait to try both of these.
