Sliced Palm Seeds ( Look Tan Nam Churm )


Palm seeds have a natural sweetness and can be bought in tins very easily from Asian grocers and supermarkets. They are normally sold in heavy syrup, as long as you keep the tin covered in the fridge, and enough syrup to cover the seeds, they can be kept for 2 months.
In the photograph above you can see sliced palm seeds, and a tin shown on the right.

we get these fresh here in India. Not in store but sold on carts on road sides. In villages you can actually stand under the palm tree and watch the guy fetch the fruit for you and enjoy.
I love this stuff :)
