gumbo has been around for a long time. it is cajun[sp?]

gumbo is made [in simplicity] by boiling oil with flower until it browns, then adding coocked seafood/beef/pork/poultry/whatever and vegetables [really your choice but okra is good because it adds a great thick texture to the sauce as it cooks] and cooking untill it thickens. i won't even touch the subject of seasoning as there are so many options.

the specific method and ingerdients used can vary signifigantly and in many cases are closely dictated by tradition.

like concretefeet said, the roux (oil and flour) is the base for all gumbo. rice is a major ingredient, as well. this is what i start off with. then, i basically just start dumping in whatever i have around.

season it to your taste, but make sure it's spicy enough to burn you on the way out or it's not true cajun gumbo.

i'll see if i can find a receipe for you. i don't use one, but my aunt in new orleans might have one.

i thought gumbo was creole cooking?
Gumbo is really good, i like the meat kind.
Gumbo has it's own sauce its thin and gumbo is always to be eaten over rice... Your pour your gumbo over a bowl of rice!

I'd skip the chicken necks and gizzards and substitute some other kinda meat for it...
but thats just me. You could use more chicken or sausage or more shrimps or keep the recipe the same and just exclude the necks and gizzards!

i've actually eaten chicken necks before. they taste good, but there isn't much meat on them. it is a pain in the ass to pick the meat off the bone.

Man, how yall gona talk about making gumbo and forget the file (seasoning)!?

My mother is a Coon Ass (Lousiana) and I grew up on her gumbo. It has to be one of my favorite dishes, I especially like seafood gumbo though.

Mmmmm....gumbo....
