Gumbo File of Superior Quality from Starwest Botanicals

Starwest Botanicals, a certified bulk herbs processor that offers only the finest quality dried herbs and spices is pleased to present our gumbo file seasoning.

Seafood gumbo file is a seasoning powder used in a dish called gumbo that is from the Louisiana area of the United States. It is a stew that is made with seafood such as crab and shrimp, and often has wonderful southern Andouille sausage added; it may also contain chicken and ham. As with other Cajun and Creole recipes from this region, the vegetables used in gumbo are known as the "trinity," and consist of diced onions, bell peppers and celery. Some recipes also call for okra and tomatoes.

Gumbo file seasoning is added at the end of the recipe for gumbo. Gumbo begins with what is known as a roux, which is equal parts flour and oil or butter slow-cooked over low heat. The butter is melted in the pan, and then the flour sprinkled over the butter. Use a whisk to keep the mixture moving and to constantly scrape the bottom of the pan, because it can easily burn. After the roux is at the color you prefer, add rich chicken or seafood stock to it, to create gravy. You can separately cook the meats, seafood and vegetables, then add them to the roux mixture. After it is cooked, take the gumbo off the heat and add in a small amount of gumbo file to flavor and thicken the dish.

Seafood gumbo file is made from the leaf of the sassafras tree. Buy gumbo file today from Starwest Botanicals and rest assured knowing that all of our spices come with a complete satisfaction guarantee.

Ingredients: Pure sassafras leaf powder. SALT FREE!
