[quote=007bond-jb][quote="Smokey Lew":3aja7bnb]JB that was fantastic! May try Gumbo if I can round up all the right ingredients here in Souther Cal.
File` powder is hard if not impossible to find outside of La. Its made from dried then ground sasaffras tree leaves. They have a special flavor just like bay leaves have there own special flavor. You can use okra
but it will tast different[/quote:3aja7bnb]
Thanks for the heads up JB. I googled File powder and found it at [url="http://www.thespicehouse.com"]http://www.thespicehouse.com[/url] in glass jar or resealable bags. One cup shaker jar for $5.78 and 4 oz. bag for $5.69. Sounds like I might be in business. I'm going to review your video again to see how much I'll need.
Thanks again, Smokey Lew
PS - I just reviewed the video and couldn't determine how much or when you add the File'. Can you advise?
