Filé Gumbo


Filé Gumbo has been used as a flavoring and sauce thickener for centuries by the Choctaw people in the American South. Made of dried and pulverized leaves of the Sassafras tree, Filé Gumbo provides an authentic flavor and texture for many creole and Cajun dishes.

Use 2-3 tsp of Filé Gumbo toward the end of cooking gumbo, fish stews, and other creole or Cajun dishes as a flavoring and sauce thickener.
