A mainstay of spicy Cajun and Creole cooking, file powder is a traditional thickener for gumbos. Characterized by a woodsy flavor reminiscent of root beer, the olive-green powder is made from the dried, pulverized leaves of the sassafras tree, which is native to Louisiana bayou country. The premium, all-natural ingredients for our Gumbo File are sourced from around the world and expertly blended by a family-owned company in Napa Valley. Use file powder to thicken gumbos or as a seasoning for Cajun and Creole dishes. Our classic Gumbo File combines ground, dried sassafras leaves with aromatic thyme. 1.3 oz. Made in USA from imported ingredients.
