Asafoetida (or Hing)

Regular price $6.95 Sale

It is part of the celery family Apiaceae. Asafoetida is thought to be in the same genus as silphium, a plant now believed to be extinct, and was used as a cheaper substitute for that historically important herb. The species is native to the deserts of Iran and mountains of Afghanistan, but is mainly cultivated in nearby India Asafoetida has a pungent smell, but in cooked dishes it delivers a smooth flavour reminiscent of leeks.
