Gumbo File is also known as sassafras and it is native to the United States. It is primarily used to season Creole and Cajun dishes, and as a culinary thickener. It tastes good in/with soups, fish, poultry, game, meat and vegetable stews. Usually file powder is added after the dish is removed from the heat but while the liquid is still near boiling and then stirred in and blended thoroughly. Be sure not to boil after powder has been added or it can turn stringy.
Ingredients: Thyme, Ground Sassafras.
