DIRECTIONS

  • To make the Basic Roux: Heat 3/4 cup oil in a iron skillet. When oil is hot, gradually add 1 cup flour, stirring continuously until well mixed. Lower heat and continue to stir until chocolate brown. When roux is chocolate brown remove from skillet and set aside. If it remains in skillet it will continue to cook and get to dark.
  • In a large pot-not a black iron pot-saute onion,celery,bell pepper, garlic and okra in butter for about 10 minutes. Add roux, water and worcestershire.
  • Cook for 1 hour.
  • Add all other ingredients, except for parsley. Cook for 1 more hour.Adjust seasoning if needed- salt and pepper are to taste. Add parsley.
  • Serve over rice.
  • This is better the next day- if there is any left. This says serves 6 - Nanny usually made a double batch.
