Kitchen Adventures: Mama Sita's Sinigang sa Sampaloc Soup Base

"Sour and blissfully fruity that is true to the taste
of unripen tamarind sinigang. Celebrating
the popular dish through a meticulous selection
of the freshest ingredients combined in the
tried and true Mama Sita's way."
I already tried many ready -made tamarind soup-base for sinigang especially the powered one. However, there  is still nothing to beat the natural one (cooking the tamarind fruit, pressing it until you get the extract). One day I am looking for sinigang mix, I came to this Mama Sita’s Sinigang sa Sampaloc. I picked and was surprised. It was liquid and not powder like the other available in the market. So I grab a couple of pieces to try in Sinigang na Hipon instead of using the calamansi juice or the sinigang sa sampaloc powder mix.

My judgement:  It is as good as the natural one compared to powder mixes which you can really taste the artificial flavors. From now on, this is one thing I will not forget in my grocery list.
