What is Tamari?

I have a recipe for duck and pomegranite soup which sounds great, but calls for a 'tablespoon of tamari'. Is that short hand for tamarind or something? It says I'll need to by it in a delicatessen...but I don't know what it is

It's soy sauce. A bit mellower than the regular kind. You can find it at most large supermarkets and at Whole Foods and TJs.

lulu, it also may be called shoya. But IMO, soy sauce, shoya and tamari can be interchangeable in a pinch.

Tamari is wheat free soy sauce.

Oh wow, thank you! Gosh, that really changes the rest of the nature of the soup, but sounds wonderful!

If I can't find Tamari, er, tomorrow (love the joke too!) I'll try it with soy sauce. Thank you very much!
