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.
