RECIPE FOR TAMARIND (A FRUIT) SAUCE

TAMARIND IS A SLENDER FRUIT WITH A FEW SEGMENTS. IT IS ENCLOSED
IN A LIGHT BROWN THIN SHELL AND IT MAY BE EATEN NOT ONLY WHEN IT
IS RIPE, BUT HALF RIPE AS WELL.
TO MAKE TAMARIND SAUCE THE FRUIT MUST BE RIPE (BROWN WHEN THE SHELL
IS REMOVED). YOU MUST ALSO PICK A LOT OF THEM AS THE FRUITS ARE
SMALL. IT IS PREPARED BY THE FOLLOWING STEPS:
(1) REMOVE THE SHELL FROM ALL THE TAMARIND FRUIT
(2) ADD THE TAMARIND TO A POT WITH WATER AND BROWN SUGAR
(3) COOK THE MIXTURE UNTIL IT IS THICK. ALLOW IT TO COOL BEFORE
SERVING.

Submitter comment: IF A LOT OF THIS SAUCE IS EATEN YOU WILL HAVE DIARRHEA.
