Description

Size:Gumbo Filé Powder – 4 Ounce

Filé powder is the term used for ground sassafras root. The root and leaves of the sassafras tree were used by Native Choctaw Indians before also being incorporated as part of the motley blend that is Creole cooking.

The flavor is similar to root beer (the flavor of which comes from sassafras root) and has woodsy, rosemary-like notes to it. Filé powder is often used as a thickener more than a flavor agent. This is particularly true for gumbo, a traditional Creole dish. When in season, okra is used to thicken gumbo and filé powder is used when it isn’t.
