Caribbean: Jamaica: Jamaican Tamarind Balls

Caribbean: Jamaica: Jamaican Tamarind Balls
1 Pound Tamarind Pods Sweet or Sour
1 Cup Brown Sugar
Remove the Tamarind from the Pods:
Do this by cracking the shell and removing the fibers that are attached to the stem, then add to a bowl.
Remove any small shells that may be stuck onto the flesh.
In the mixing bowl, pour the brown sugar onto the tamarind flesh.
Using a gloved hand, squeeze and massage the sugar into the tamarind until all the sugar is incorporated and the mixture is stiff but a little sticky.
Portion the mixture into 12 equal pieces and place on a flat surface or wax paper.
Using both hands, rub each piece between your palms to form a ball then place back onto the wax paper.
Repeat the process until all the tamarind balls are formed then enjoy.
