Additional Information:

Gumbo File is added after the dish is removed from the heat, but while the liquid is still near boiling. It is stirred in and blended thoroughly. The dish must not be allowed to boil after the file powder is added or it will turn stringy. Start by using 1 teaspoon per 4 servings and adjust from there.
