Default Asafoetida

I came across this as an ingredient in an Indian recipe. Has anyone had any
experience with it?

Happy New Year, Nick

A very distinctive spice with a smell that reminds you that the
English word "fetid" derived from asafoetida. Keep it well wrapped
unless you are using it, you will find it powerful and quite unpleasant
by itself but it adds a distinctive touch to some Indian cooking. The
following recipe is similar to one I have made in the past: From
http://www.indian-food-recipe.com/content/view/348/158/
It should be a great way to start a new year.

I have no experience with it, but I do remember that in the old days (19th
Century) people wused ot wear it around the neck to ward off diseases. I
guess its horrid smell was believed to keep the illness at bay.

Thanks, Pavane. Yes. I'm quite familiar with the pungency of the uncooked
spice. I like the recipe, except for the cauliflower. ;-)

What I was really wondering about was its effect on BG, gastroparesis and
such.

19th Century? Baby sister, you're not THAT old! ;-D

Also reputed to attract wolves! (relax girls - the four legged variety)

Summary: high in carbohydrates. Nothing found indicating it has any
other effect on diabetes. Has a laxative effect, which indicates it
might help the gastroparesis. Usually comes from India, which is
not known for providing herbs usually free from adulterants such as
mercury, lead and arsenic.

Thank you. Now that I'm retired, I've had plenty of time to learn how.
