GUMBO FILÉ POWDER
Derived from the leaves of the Sassafras tree, this exquisitely earthy and woody spice is the Cajun and Creole Chef’s Best Friend! Thickens while providing AUTHENTIC DOWN-HOME FLAVOR to New Orleans Style Gumbos, Stews and Gravies.
Filé powder is used in Louisiana Creole cuisine in the making of some types of gumbo, a thick Creole soup or stew often served over rice. Several different varieties exist. In New Orleans, what is known as Creole gumbo generally varies from house to house though still retaining its Native American origins.
