4565Re: [Apicius] Apicius 6.8.1
- Dec 7, 2008Asofoetida is Latin for "putrid garlic" . :) That is the name of the
spice though, I've bought it at a grocery co-op in Minneapolis. There is
nothing else like it. It's almost garlic, but not quite fennel and quite
pungent. The cat who inspects everything ran away from it.
You should be able to order some from an online resource. It's still
used in Indian cuisine today.
