      We followed the directions exactly as written. We thought the gumbo was good, but the file seemed to overpower the rest of the dish. I have a gumbo file from Penzey's. Later, when DH took a look at the recommendations on our Penzey's bag, it suggested about 2-3 tsp for the amount of stew listed in the recipe, versus tablespoons. Perhaps that file is more concentrated? Don't know, but I would try it again using tsp for Tb and see if we enjoy it more. Thanks!

      This was our first Gumbo experience also. I loved it but my poor husband can only handle hot spicy food. Black peppers about his limit and nothing beyond. I used Hillshire Farm's Hot Links Smoked Sausage with Chile Peppers so I did not add the hot pepper sauce. I did not have any Cajun seasoning so I made my own using spices from Penzey and Cajun Seasoning Mix recipe from Mirj. The Gumbo file was fun to stir in. As it thicken, it also turned the Gumbo a greenish color. I'd like to make this again for some friends that enjoy the heat as much as I do. Made during * Zaar World Tour 5* 2009 game for team *Genies of Gourmet*

      I've never had gumbo before, always wanted to, now intend to have more! This is good stuff! We used prawns and a ring of smoked sausage, and served it with black-eyed peas and white rice. The texture and color of the file-thickened sauce took us by surprise; some liked it, one didn't. Pretty much we'd never had anything like this, so aside from being delicious, the adventure was worth the effort. Made for Zaar World Tour 5.

      My boyfriend took one bite of this and said, "Wow! This is the best gumbo I'd ever had!" I did have some Cajun seasoning and gumbo filé from Penzeys. I served with this a homemade French baguette. Made for ZWT5: French/Cajun/Creole.
