The Tamarind fruit is very acidic can be extremely sour by itself, but with a little preparation, you can have a delicious sweet and sour treat. Adding some powdered chili will give you some spice as well..

 Lets get started..

Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients

Here is what you will need:

1 pound Tamarind pods
1 to 1 1/2 cups of water
2 1/2 cups sugar (save a 1/2 cup for later)
1 teaspoon salt
1 to 2 tablespoons Chile de arbol (optional and to taste) or cayenne
Is there any mango in it?
<p>Is this what they use on apples, to make them candied apples?</p>

I'm surprised that the seeds may stay in. How does one negotiate the eating of these candies? just chew/suck around the seeds?
Usually the candy is just sucked on, the tamarind melts in your mouth and you just spit out the seeds.. You can remove the seeds, it just takes a little bit longer..
This looks great. :D
Thank you..
*drool* I have a heavy addiction to tamarind. This is AWESOME! Thanks! I shall print and buy! I will let you know how it works out. *wipes drool*
Wow! That looks like an intense process. Well done!
Thank you.. It's not to bad once the Tamarinds are shelled..
