Gumbo Filé

$6.00

approximately 1.25 oz

Filé powder, also called gumbo filé, is a spicy herb made from the dried and ground leaves of the North American sassafras tree.

Sprinkled sparingly over gumbo as a seasoning and a thickening agent, Filé powder adds a distinctive, earthy flavor and texture.  Filé powder is generally not added until after the vegetables and meats and/or seafood are finished cooking and removed from the heat source.

Here's some great gumbo recipes
