Gumbo File

(2 customer reviews)

$6.00$10.00

This freshly ground file powder will make your next batch of gumbo spectacular. File can lose its potency rather quickly, so we grind this fresh when you order. Ours should stay fresh for at least 5-8 months, much longer than low quality file. Many people simply leave this essential ingredient out when making gumbo and they miss out on a key flavor of the dish. Fresh file adds a bittering element in addition to helping to thicken gumbo. We also add a touch of it to our award-winning chili powder.

    From customer email: “I am serious about gumbo and have to have a high quality fresh file on hand at all times. I love this one.”

    Neutral experience … I expected more flavor to be released … it did arrived on time, though …

    • Meaghan Thomas (store manager)

      Hi Johnson. Thanks for your purchase and review. We are sorry you had a neutral experience – our goal is to thrill our customers and I’m sorry we fell short for you. In gumbo, file is typically used as a thickening agent and to bring a mild bitter flavor to it. It usually takes a back seat to other flavors, like onion, garlic, sausage, black pepper and cayenne, so it doesn’t bring a ton of flavor but it should connect that flavors and add a little bitter snap to it. We believe we have found the highest quality organic sassafras leaves out there and we grind it fresh. That said, we’re going to review our latest batch of sassafras to make sure it’s up to our high standards. We appreciate your comment, and take it very seriously. Thank you for giving us a try and we hope we can work to earn your business again.
