Homemade Tamarind Concentrate

1 cup


  • 1/2 pound dried tamarind, with their peel
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

To Prepare

  • Peel tamarinds of the peel, large seeds and strains. Soak overnight. Strain in a colander and press with your hands or a spoon. Place tamarind juice in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, add sugar, and simmer over medium heat for 40-45 minutes. Juice should have thickened considerably. Squeeze in the fresh lime juice, let it simmer for a couple more minutes and let it cool.
