Tamarind Candy

Locally known as sambag or sampaloc in Tagalog, tamarind is mostly associated with sinigang, a dish made with meat or fish with a sour broth. Yet it can also be a dessert with hints of sourness when it's made into a candy. Its an acquired taste but if you already love the sourness of tamarind in soups, chances are, you'll love it even more as a candy.
Here's a simple recipe on how to make a Tamarind Candy

  • 2 cups ripe Tamarind Pulp 
  • 2 cups Brown Sugar
  • 2 cups Water
  • Pinch of salt
