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.

Filé for my Gumbo

I make a 10 gallon batch of Gumbo for a party each year. The filé I ordered was fresh and excellent for gumbo.

Jumbo Gumbo!

Without this there is no real gumbo so I am a happy camper. I would like to know where else this can be used.

Great gumbo

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