    Shastaw2006's Note:

    My Papa makes this seafood gumbo almost every year for Christmas, and it is amazing. I keep losing my paper recipe, so this is mostly here for safekeeping. This makes a lot, so make room in the freezer. Also, measurements are approximated... we don't measure so guessing measurements was difficult!

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Make a roe with the oil and flour in a skillet. Add more of either flour or oil as necessary. It should be a medium dark brown, and a thin syrup. You should have approximately 3 cups of roe when finished.
    2. 2
      Add celery, garlic and onions to the roe and cook until translucent. Pour this into a very large 20 gallon stock pot.
    3. 3
      Add white wine, and approximately 1 gallon water. Add more as necessary, this is hard to measure but it should be about 2/3 water and 1/3 wine.
    4. 4
      In your original skillet, brown the sausage. Add this to the pot.
    5. 5
      Add seasonings to taste.
    6. 6
      Boil for 1-2 hours on medium high. When it starts to smell good, you know you are starting to get there. Start tasting at this point and add more seasonings as necessary.
    7. 7
      Add okra and oysters.
    8. 8
      Let cook for another 40 minutes or so.
    9. 9

    10. 10
