The scent of this plant resin when raw is unpleasant; hence the nickname "devil's dung." But when cooked, it transforms into a buttery onion-garlic flavor. Used mainly in Indian cooking with lentils or vegetables.
Ingredients: Asafoetida resin and Fenugreek (used to aid in processing).
Size: 1/4 cup jar
Oaktown Spice Shop has been in the Adams Point neighborhood for nine years. They focus on sourcing the absolute best-tasting version of each individual spice, then grind the spices themselves, in their shop. This means the ground spices customers find at Oaktown are bursting with flavor and are far fresher than those found elsewhere.
