    In Chicken and Sausage Gumbo do I use as a seasoning table, to taste or add some to the Gumbo? I've seen it usd both ways in recipes when I searched.

    And how much would you add.

    I made this 2 years ago and I have no idea what I did back then.

    i personally don't care for file' powder in my gumbo, but, i believe it is best used as a table seasoning...very lightly.

    Just an FYI. The spice bottle, Burma brand Gumbo File is ground, so no stringy stuff.

    It lists the ingredients as: Coriander, Thyme, parsley, Rosemary Bay Leaves and sassafras

    I added about 1/2 - 1 t to the pot.

    I had to simmer it a long time to reduce the liquid, but this is an awesome recipe.

    Thanks for you input, friends.
