    mary winecoff's Note:

    My children love gumbo. Their Uncle Jim makes the best (see Jim's Famous Seafood Gumbo) but in a pinch I will throw this in a crock pot for a cold night and they will be satisfied. The hardest part is making the roux. Don't rush it.

      I have made gumbo before, but never in the crockpot and was very anxious to see how it would turn out. Overall it was very good, but I think I would make a few minor changes the next time I make it. For one thing, and this is my fault, I would cook the roux a little longer. I cooked it for 20 minutes and it was a dark, reddish brown color, but not quite dark enough. I also think I might try using chicken broth instead of water. I like my gumbo fairly thick and the crockpot put too much moisture in the dish, so half way through the cooking process, I poured it all into an enamel covered, cast iron dutch oven and that seemed to correct the problem. The flavor was wonderful and I most definitely would make this again. Thank you so much for submitting this. I love your recipes!

      I will rate this recipe a 4 star for the way it is... i added a few things that I think made it 5 stars :) After reading the reviews about 'blandness' I added a few extra spices according to an Emeril recipe I found-- approximately 1/4 to 1/2 tsp each of paprika, thyme, oregano, parsley, and 3 bay leaves. With that- perfectly spiced!! I also used 1/2 chicken stock and 1/2 water for the water.

      Found this recipe to be a little bland, which was surprising to me. There are leftovers so I'm going to add some Louisiana Hot Sauce and a little more salt and see if that spices it up a little
