makes me think of a "Sanford and Son" episode where the old man wears an "Assifisity" bag around his neck to ward off sickness.

My boyfriend eats a low FODMAP diet to control IBS so he can't have alliums (onion, shallots, leeks, garlic except for garlic infused oil). We've incorporated asafoetida into our diet to replace the flavor. It smells awful raw, but you should cook the spice first. I typically put it in the pan with a little oil, radish, and green onion to build the base. You only need a small amount - less than a tsp.

Beans are completely out on the low FODMAP diet so if they are causing you distress, consider cutting them out of your chili. I add my own when I make chili for the boyfriend.

I checked out the fodmap lists and most of the fruits and vegetables I enjoy are on the bad list. No more avocado?

Not ready to do that yet, but maybe later if it gets bad enough.

Never heard of it, but it seems to have many amazing health benefits.

Here is about and how much to use:

It's pungent smell can make this powder seem off-putting, but rest assured it dissipates while cooking, bringing a full, savory flavor to foods.

YES! I hadn't heard of it for years but it figured in one of the "Penrod and Sam " novels set in the pre-WW1 years. Didn't realize anyone cooked with it.

Thanks for those links. Mine is a medium brown, so it looks like I have pure stuff. I'll go really easy with it for sure till I get more experience using it.

I use sometimes asafoetida or known in India as "hing" in my Indian sauces, pickled vegetable chutneys and pickles, legumes and fish curry. The north Indian cuisine uses asafoetida/hing for meat and vegetable stews known as kormas.Always used in small amounts.I never heard about this ingredient until I was introduced to the Indian cuisine.

I like to use it and cumin seeds in sauteed spinach or really, any greens. sizzle in a bit of oil or butter then add the spinach. Yum. That was actually the first time I actually liked cooked spinach.

Where does one purchase this hing if they don't want to buy it online? Is the name I'd ask for in a store hing?
