Tamarind Honey Dipping Sauce

Tamarind juice: Soak a lime-size piece of tamarind pulp or 1 Tbsp. paste in hot water (tap water is just fine) for 15 minutes to soften.  When water cools to lukewarm, using your hand, squeeze the tamarind, getting as much juice as possible.  Strain through a sieve, discarding the residue.  Makes 1/2 cup. Covered, the tamarind juice keeps in the refrigerator for 4 days.

(Note: Lime juice can be substituted: 1 Tbsp. lime juice = 3 Tbsp. tamarind juice)
