Details

In traditional Creole and Cajun cuisines of Louisiana, gumbo filé powder is used for its subtle, floral flavor and unique thickening properties. As a thickener it can be used on its own or in addition to roux and okra. Filé powder is generally added at the end of the cooking process, or stirred into a single serving of hot seafood gumbo. Gumbo filé is made from the dried leaves of the sassafras tree of the eastern United States. American Indians pounded sassafras leaves into a powder and added them to soups and stews. Ingredients: Sassafras leaves.

Great gumbo

This gumbo file makes for a rich flavorful gumbo without the okra my family won't eat!

Ça c'est bon (That's good)

Ya cant have gumbo without filé and this one is as good as it gets! Its tradition, I make gumbo for Christmas eve dinner for our whole family, at least 2 turkey roasters full, and a couple other times a year when we get a hankering for it, we have to have our file and I keep this one on hand!
