Gumbo File'

Print Product

Gumbo File'

It is hard to make authentic Creole dishes without Gumbo File' and Silver Cloud is one of the few spice houses that offers this product. Gumbo File' is the powdered leaves of the Sassafras tree (Sassafras albidum). The ground leaves smell like root beer and are uaed as a thickening agent in gumbo, soups, stews and other dishes.

We add a little ground thyme to our Gumbo File' for flavor. Thyme is an herb, which is widely used in Cajun seasonings. Only add Gumbo File' after removing your dish from the heat. It can become stringy if added while on the burner.

Silver Cloud's Gumbo File' is gluten-free.

Why Buy Your Spices at Silver Cloud Estates?

Why buy spices online when they are so readily available at your local store? The answer is quality and price. The spices sold at your local store are often a year or two old. As spices age, they loose much of their flavor. Silver Cloud's spices are always fresh, never old. Our products are also an excellent value. When you need spices, click on Silver Cloud Estates for the freshest products at great prices.

Vanilla bean and extract prices have increased significantly in the last few months. This is due to a smaller than expected crop in Madagascar last Summer and high demand for the beans. Unfortunately, the crop was also smaller in some of the other producing areas, which has resulted in increased pressure on prices. While short term the news is not good, there is currently a large crop of vanilla on the vines in Madagascar that will be harvested shortly. This may lead to some price softening, but with the strong demand for beans it is hard to say how much relief we will see. We will know more later this year as the new crop of cured beans become available. Best case we do not anticipate any significant reduction before the end of the 1st quarter in 2017.
