File Or Okra Gumbo?
Fri, 05/15/09 8:09 PM
For me the choice is simple, I usually go with okra, partly because I like it and partly because of the safrole controversy regarding file powder. I do think the safrole controversy is overblown though.
I do think okra is a healthy vegetable, thickens better than file and for my taste generally more enjoyable in a gumbo. That's just my opinion though. What do you do and why?
