Tamarind Syrup

time traveler Feb 16, 2002 02:33 PM

Cardullo's in Harvard Square used to carry Tamarind Syrup. Can anyone tell me where I might find this delectable sweet anywhere? The Boston area is my first choice but anywhere in NE is just fine.

        I bought a bottle of it a few years ago..for a recipe that I never made. If you can't find it you can have my unopened bottle...unless of course I try that drink and fall in love with it..:)

      I buy tamarind concentrate (pulp and water) at Super88 at the Southbay Center - They may have the tamarind syrup (I don't think they're the same?)

        the middle eastern markets in watertown usually have tamarind syrup. try arax market:

        Arax Market 617/924-3399. 603 Mt Auburn, Watertown

        If they don't have it, there are many other middle eastern markets in the same area that usually have it.
