FAQs about tamarind

If you have raw pods, you can store them in a cool, dark place for about a week this way. Place them in a zip-top bag, and squeeze out the air. The warmer the temperature where they are stored, the faster they will ripen. After you open the pods, the fruit will last about a week.

With unopened tamarind paste, you can store it indefinitely in a cool, dark place. Once you open the paste, place it in the refrigerator, where it can last between 6 months and a year. Whenever you want some of this compressed tamarind, use a sharp knife to simply cut off the amount you want and place the remainder back in the refrigerator.

Yes, you can freeze tamarind. Unshelled tamarinds can last for a year in the freezer. Simply freeze your pods in a freezer-safe airtight container or plastic bag. You might notice a slight change in flavor compared to the fresh tamarind. Avoid freezing tamarind that has a cracked shell or that has already ripened.

You can also freeze compressed tamarind, although it's best to portion it out into smaller sizes. You can do this by putting the room-temperature paste into ice cube trays and freezing it. Place the frozen tamarind in a zip-top bag, and remove the amounts you need for the dish.

Tamarind seeds are edible, but you should probably soak them first and then roast them for about 5 minutes over medium heat. Eating the seeds directly from the shell is fine, but they taste bitter when eaten raw.
