Indians from the Louisiana bayou are thought to be the first people to use this seasoning made from the ground dried leaves of the sassafras tree. File powder is used in Cajun and Creole cuisines as a seasoning and a thickening agent. It has a woodsy flavor similar to birch or root beer and must be stirred into a dish after it is removed from the heat, as over cooking makes gumbo file powder tough and stringy.

Ingredients: sassafras leaves, spices, garlic
