Asafoetida Powder, 1 lb. package
Frontier Natural Products Co-op
Asafoetida overcomes its reputation for an unpleasant aroma and initial taste by enhancing other flavors and imparting a garlic/onion bite to a variety of ethnic dishes. Become a convert by trying it sparingly with grains and beans, and be sure to stock up on it if you like Indian food.
Asafoetida is an oleogum resin obtained from the living rhizomes and roots of Ferula assa-foetida, a branching perennial relative of fennel. In its most pure form (tears) it is a solid or semi-solid mass, with an intense, pungent, alliaceous odor, and bitter, acid taste. When used in minute quantities it enhances and blends the flavors of other spices, and imparts a delicate, onion-like flavor.
