When you make gumbo, should you cook the okra and peppers first?
Should you cook all of the things like that BEFORE you put them into the gumbo? Thanks.

Okra and peppers should be added last to the gumbo, so they will not turn to mush. Don't cook them before adding them to the gumbo.
It sounds really good. Do you ship to Florida?

Paul Prudhomme does. Gumbo is a complicated area of clarify like this. you have chose pictures etc to help you to examine the suggestions. Get a e book... then detect a cooking practice and watch it being arranged and you would be sturdy to flow. quite cooking a roux is substantial and not quite defined in words.

The best part about gumbo is the seasoning. Put ALL the ingredients in and let simmer. don't pre- cook the vegetable part.

As you can see their is a pattern among all the recipes that I listed.
then the rest
What I do is usually look at at least 5 recipes online, get an outline of what I need and the steps, then I create something my own.Source(s): http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/shr... http://www.cooks.com/rec/doc/0,1745,145163-254206,... http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,1745,144163-254206... http://soup-aholic.blogspot.com/2008/01/gulf-coast... http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Shrimp-Gumbo/Detail.a... http://recipes.howstuffworks.com/spicy-shrimp-gumb... http://www.recipe-source.com/soups/soups/okra-shri...
