Hi Chelsie,

I was wondering can you make a tamarind paste out of whole tamarinds? My Mother in law sends us lots of tamarinds as a snack and sometime they go bad before we eat them. If I could make a paste maybe I could use them up quicker. I will be trying the drink recipe this week. Thanks

Tamarind drink is, in effect, diluted “tamarind water.” Tamarind water is a popular ingredient in Indian and Southeast Asian Food.In fact, one can purchase Tamarind pulp and vaiouus tamarind extractives in Indian and Southeast Asian Grocery Stores. I even have a box of freeze-dried tamarind extract. All of these products can be diluted into a credible Agua de Tamarindo. The Guide to Indian Cooking should be able to provide guidance on the extraction of concentrated Tamarind water for diluting and drinking. My guidance is to soak seeded tamarind pulp in water for a couple of days, then drain out the pulp. Store in sterilized jars for up to a month or so at room temperature. Tamarind extract is fairly acidic (lemon-like), which assists in its preservation. I think it can be boiled; if you are satisfied with the quality of boiled tamarind extract, I would recommend that your tamarind juice be boiled and put into sterilized jars or bottles and sealed (canned). That is my experience with Tamarinds. Tamarind pods can be purchased in many large grocery stores. Check with the produce manager. There are many delicious uses of tamarind. If you live in a tropical or semi-tropical zone, you may be able to plant your own Tamarind Tree.
