I was fortunate enough to visit a friend who lived on St. Croix, in the Virgin Islands some years ago. I tasted a tamarind ball and loved it. I recently came across this recipe (although at the time of writing I haven't actually made my own candies yet). Note that some people also add garlic, black pepper or cayenne pepper for flavoring. The time estimate is based on using tamarind paste.
