Gumbo File Seasoning
Premium, fine ground, woodsy green powder of sassafras combined with ground thyme to create traditional gumbo file. File powder is an integral part of Creole and Cajun cuisine cooking used to flavor and thicken gumbos and other dishes. Gumbo is a stew commonly thickened by the seedpods of okra, the flour-to-fat mixture roux and file powder. It usually contains varied and seasonal meats, seafood and vegetables including celery, peppers and onion-the “holy trinity” of Cajun and Creole cooking.
