Tamarind is a pod-like fruit native to Africa that is widely cultivated in many tropical and subtropical regions for their exceptional flavor. Tamarind is incredibly complex in taste: it is fruity, sweet, earthy, and characteristically aromatic with a refreshingly sour taste. Tamarind concentrate is made from fresh tamarind and is essentially a puree. It is smooth, seedless, and ready-to-use. Tamarind is essential in achieving an authentic flavor in chutneys, curries, drinks, and more for a variety of different cultures ranging from Mexico to Thailand.
Uses: Use tamarind concentrate to season your foods directly or as a delicious ingredient for cocktails, desserts, and baked goods.
