Filé Powder


Filé Powder, a staple in Southern pantries, is made from ground sassafras leaves. With a rich, sweet and cooling aroma, it is essential for authentic Cajun and Creole cooking. A thickening agent for gumbos and other stews, add it to your dish after you have removed it from heat and five minutes before serving. Be careful not to overheat so it does not become sticky or gummy. Not only for gumbo, you can also season shrimp, scallops and rice with Filé Powder for unique flavor.
