A great way to use tamarind pods! A Mexican recipe adapted from Rick Bayless's book "Authentic Mexican". I have also discovered the tamarind is used throughout much of Africa!

The Love Chef, Francis Anthony who appeared on the Regis and Kathy Lee show, calls this a Christmas punch but it is equally appropriate in the summer. Ahead of time, freeze the water or lemonade in a ring mold to make an ice ring. For a specially festive touch, place whole strawberries in the ring before adding the liquid and freezing. From the Cooking with Regis and Kathy Lee cookbook.
