Tamarind Balls are a Caribbean coastal delicacy. They are prepared with the tamarind pulp that has all the seeds in it. You can find the pulp in Latin or Asian food stores, unprocessed, which means that it has seeds and no extra sugar or water added, only the shells removed. It will look like a brown, odd shaped ball wrapped in paper or plastic. People eat the balls with the seeds in it, as you would grapes. This sweet and tart concoction keeps you asking for more.
