 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      ounce         tamarind*
   10      tablespoons   hot water
    1      teaspoon      salt
      1/4  cup           sugar
    6      tablespoons   rice wine vinegar
 
 * availabe at some Asian and Indian markets
 
 Soak the tamarind in about 5 Tbsp. of hot tap water. Stir until you have a
paste. 
 Strain the juice from the pulp, squeezing the pulp in a small strainer. Discard 
 the pulp.
 
 Place another 5 Tbsp. of water in a small saucepan. Add 2 Tbsp. of the tamarind 
 juice, along with the remaining ingredients. Bring to a simmer and cook, 
 uncovered, for about 10 minutes, stirring often. The color should look like a 
 light brown syrup. You should have 3/4 c. liquid. If not, add additional water 
 and heat again for just a moment.
 
 Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 2 months.
