This, start with a roux and build it up, taste it as you go, add seafood, crab, shrimp, oysters if you're up for them, if you can get some andouille sausage add that in there, if not don't substitute another sausage, it isn't going to have that same taste.

Kek these people are honorary whites for accomplishing a culture. They’re also superior caucasoids. Actually all of northern africa was colonized by caucasoids, those blacks are really a hybrid between the negroid and true humans but probably mostly just black whites like Indians.

I actually made gumbo tonight, kind of the 30 mins dinner.

Slice andouille in thick cut on the bias slices, browned both sides, in a little olive oil. Remove from pan, sweat your trinity (peppers, onions, celery), then push aside, to rendered fat, ladle out any extra, add butter and flour. Brown til nice dark roux. Deglaze with a little sherry. Add can of stewed tomatoes or whole tomatoes, breaking up the latter a bit. Tuck in bay leaf, thyme, marjoram, parsley, shake of cayenne. Tonight, I cheated, and I used frozen gumbo veggies (corn, okra, celery, peppers) that I sweated, and I like my sausage added back only in the last 10 mins of simmer.

Serve over jasmine rice or popcorn rice.

You can pass gumbo file powder, Tony Cachere's, and Louisiana hot sauce at the table.

I like to keep the gumbo seafood free, but you could add that. Tonight I had drop biscuits with it, which I make while the rice has that last 10 mins of steaming time, and a marinated avocado salad, but often I like to enjoy gumbo with fresh french bread and softened butter.

>> No.12993086

Bingo. People attribute southern cooking to blacks because ut was the house slaves making dishes for their owners. The slaves didnt invent shit, they were tought recipes.

It's natural thickening. It eventually cooks down, and frozen is less gumming. If you don't actually like gumbo,an okra based dish, then make something else, ya know? Jambalaya or red beans. If you are slicing okra fresh, the best thing you can do is use the stickiness to adhere simply fine cornmeal and pan fry them. Crunchy crispy, like popcorn, and makes a great topping to a homey dish.

Sure, if the Japanese got taught about cabbage by the Celts.
Who do you think we got corn from? Did you drop out of 1st grade too early to get to learn about the "first Thanksgiving?" What about rice? The most valuable slaves in the 18th Century were the ones with agricultural experience with rice and melons. There are only two places in the old world where okra and sorghum are traditionally cultivated, and we sure as hell didn't get either of them from India.
