How to make Sampaloc Candy

My favorite candy when I was a kid, my friends and I loved this during our school recess, together with some snack items. Today, when I saw the tamarind at the market, I remembered those old days and made some for myself. Yummy!
1 cup ripe tamarind/sampaloc
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
pinch of salt
1. Prepare the tamarind by removing the pulp from its pods then put in a cooking pan together with all the ingredients.

2.Bring to a boil, once it is boiling lower the heat and simmer it until the texture is sticky and smooth.

3. When it is already chewy in texture remove from heat and allow to cool before forming it into balls.

4. Form into balls and roll over the sugar. Keep in an air tight container, and serve it anytime you want it.
