Product Description

Tamicon Tamarind Paste, 8-Ounce Unit (Pack of 6) is a tangy paste collected from the pods of a tropical evergreen tree. The concentrate is widely used in Indian cuisine, tamarind pulp is initially sweet, although once removed from the pods it takes on a decidedly sharp taste. The tamarind dissolves easily in water and add a bit of sugar to the diluted pasted to round out the flavors. This paste is also used in curries, dipping sauces, or marinades.

A very little amount goes a long way.

This has great flavor and will last me quite a while, as it's a pack of 6.

Just a perfect paste for homemade Pad Thai sauce.

Tamarind paste has not been a staple in my pantry -- until I discovered what a difference it can make in my cooking. I created a marvelous Pad Thai sauce, simply by using this paste (and a few other ingredients).

For all its goodness, I have to say that you've got to have a little faith in order to put something like this in a sauce. It resembles nothing so much as road tar, black, gooey, utterly yucky-looking. But do give it a shot -- its worth your time and effort.

By the way, I bought the 6-pack. That's a lot of tamarind paste, more, in fact, that I can use in this lifetime. I'm sharing bottles with friends and relatives.

Highly recommended for those who enjoy oriental cooking.

I too am probably going to be giving away several jars of this paste - a very small amount goes a long way, and I'm not sure how long its shelf life is. There are spaces on the label for batch number, manufacturing date, and expiration date - but just one number (91016) stamped in that general area - appears to be a batch number.

While the lack of an expiration date is annoying, I'm otherwise very happy with this - makes pad thai taste like pad thai, so long as you don't overdo it. I had never used it before and was working with a recipe calling for processing your own tamarind pulp, so I tried guessing at the right amount. Next time I'll remember to read the bottle - "one teaspoon for six persons...." Am just beginning to experiment with other uses. The manufacturer's web site suggests using it to flavor stews and as a replacement for mango pulp or for vinegar in recipes, and yes, there are lots of recipes out there that call for it.

First time buyer from this supplier. Product was on time and as described. For tamarind, I've always used real bean pods with the shelling, soaking and straining to wind up with a messey kitchen and watery sauce. When I opened the first jar of Tamicon, I knew those pod days were over. This sauce is thick and tangy just the way it needs to be for my cooking. A favorite item for my friends is BBQ with a unique African BBQ sauce that requires tamarind. Now I have less excuse for not making it more often!

Yes, there are six containers to the order, but you might be surprised that you'll use these up b/4 too long if you like to try new recipes with tamarind. If you enter the Foodnetwork site, and word search "tamarind paste" or "tamarind concentrate" you will find a plethora of recipes using this. I have two I use often...one is for baking fish fillets with a Bali-style sauce that's easy to whip up, another recipe for glazing pork ribs on the BBQ with a tasty sauce. The list of recipes is endless. If you are a foodie and enjoy exploration of foods that are out of the ordinary, this will fit the bill. It looks and pours like dark molasses, but b/c the individual containers are 8 oz size, they don't take up room in the fridge and won't sit there for years while you try to finish one jar. The price is so reasonable for six containers, you can afford to gift one or two away.

I am on a sodium-restricted diet (1000 mg/day) and have taken the opportunity to learn how to make many of the condiments that I used to enjoy when I didn't care about salt. I made a killer quart of Worchestershire Sauce using, in part, this tamarind paste. The recipe used about 5 oz. of paste. I use the sauce to season potroasts and hamburgers, so the six-pack would be about a year's supply for me.

I don't know Pad Thai from bow tie, but in Worchestershire sauce this tamarind paste was just fine!

This product has been misrepresented as pure tamarind extract, but I can say that it is not pure. I know the taste of pure tamarind extract; this product contains molasses. You can taste and smell the molasses.

It has taken me a while to write this review.

When I first used it, I was kind of surprised that it did not have any aroma. I was not familiar with tamarind, just read about it. So I did not know what to look for. I continued to use it, thinking it must be adding something "intangible", though I did not know what. I was disappointed, but did not think the product was defective.

Then I received a jar of tamarind paste as a gift, and whoa! The explosion of flavor! Tamarind actually smells and tastes like something! Then I bought some tamarind chutney at whole foods, and the same thing -- an intense delicious taste that makes all the descriptions make sense.

So I don't know if this product I received was just old, or bad quality, or a total scam. Either way, it is not the tamarind paste you are looking for.

It is too late for me to do anything about my purchase, but if I can save someone else from making the same mistake I did, then this review will be worth it.

Cook with this often. Wonderful marinade addition. Traditional Pad Thai NEEDS this to be complete. A very little amount goes a long way. I ordered in bulk because I will be giving away to people who could stand to learn to cook more than toast and ramen. I'm talking to you, children of mine on your way to college!!!!
