Asafetida

Expand Product Info ▼

Native to Iran and Afghanistan, this very interestingly flavored spice should be used in small quantities and stored away in an airtight container. Uncooked, asafetida has an unpleasant smell almost like garlic gone bad. No wonder it is also known as Devil’s Dung and Stinking Gum!

Asafetida has been used in the past to treat hysteria.

Asafetida’s flavor is obtained from the gum of a giant fennel and is appreciated by those whose diets forbid garlic and onions. When cooked, its aroma is almost onion-like and just a little gives great taste to any pan-fried fish. Asafetida’s also great used on salted fish, grilled or roasted meats and most vegetables.

"Recently I had the opportunity to visit the store in St. Petersburg, FL. What a treat to meet those guys and be treated like one of their regulars! They were willing to break up a set for me so that I could get my Cuban Island Spice -- who does that?! So impressed with them as well."
