  1. I love tamarind used in fish cooking

  2. Hola! he probado alguna bebida y dulces con el sabor de tamarindo y la verdad es que no me gusto mucho. Besos

  3. It reminds me of mesquite beans. Which makes awesome jelly. My grandma used to pick them from the trees in the hill country of Texas (well, Mesquite trees are all over the place in west Texas too). The wood makes good barbecue too!

  4. I don't see these around in the Heartland. Good to know.

  5. I like tamarind more in cooking now
