Gumbo File Powder
Jill H.Verified BuyerAug 30, 2015
Gumbo
I was planning to make shrimp gumbo. I went to every upscale store in town and no one had gumbo file powder so I ordered it from My Spice Sage. Unfortunately, it took over a week to get the product so my gumbo had no file. However, their products are fresh and flavorful, better than spices I would buy in local stores.

File Feelings :)
I am not a experienced gumbo cook nor have I used a great bit of file in my past. That being noted, I really like the quality of this product over what I picked up in the grocery store. It is rich in aroma in it's own state and smells very fresh. I would buy again.

Excellent Quality. . .as Usual
I purchased the Gumbo File Powder to use in my Chicken & Sausage Jambalaya and Seafood Gumbos. The File Powder was fresh and flavorful. . .as always. I have been buying my spices from My Spice Sage for several years. The spices are always fresh and provide me with worry-free cooking experiences. I would never consider buying my spices elsewhere.

File Gumbo
My husband and I use a lot of file in our recipes, especially in the Cajun meals. I been buying my bulk spices from My Spice Sage for over two years and highly recommend them. Their products are always fresh and their customer service is A-1. It's always a pleasure to receive my products, knowing I am getting top shelf quality.
