About gumbo - file powder?
I live in podunk and can't find file powder. Can I make gumbo without it or am I just sol?

Go ahead without it, as with all of the other flavours it will still be robust.

you can, if you can't find file powder, sometimes its sold under the names gumbo file, or even sassafras.

You could use okra instead. Cook it slowly until it is just a big sticky mess (seriously), then add the other ingredients.
