Tamarind! This tropical African fruit has a very distinct flavor. Some say it’s sweet, others say sour. I say it’s a bit of both. The texture reminds be of raisins, but much chewier. The hard shell that surrounds the fruit has a bit of powder on it, almost resembling pollen. There’s also a noticeable stem that surrounds the fruit and branches out. While the taste is strong, the smell is very weak, almost like wood or a type of nut. I was lucky enough to try this food for the first time today, hopefully you can try it too!
