what causes gumbo to spoil?
After placing in refrigerator awoke the following morning and gumbo was flat and had spoiled. Is is true that gumbo must completely cool before placing it in a refrigerator?

Yes preferably all food must be completely cooled before placing into the refrigerator for the simple fact that you don't want to overwork the thermostat/the coolness in the refrigerator. Second, in gumbo you cooked with sausages, meat, okra etc which get spoiled easily and if you put a warm dish, covered with lid where the heat is trapped inside the pot, it will take longer to cool down the warm temperature even though you put it in the refrigerator. *

Countertop "pre-cooling" is risky because of the fact it leaves the nutrition interior the possibility zone temperature selection for too long. get rid of warm pots of despite right this moment to the refrigerator and stir it periodically to help it chill out extra promptly. If it particularly is an excellent pot, divide it into some smaller pots, refrigerate and stir to chill out quicker. Many nutrition poisoning organisms do no longer create a "undesirable" odor or style. And on a similar time as heating the nutrition would wreck the organisms, the pollution they have produced will probable nevertheless be there--and make you ill. And in all of the years I 've cooked with okra, i will in no way keep in mind a dish "effervescent"...... Toss it.

It's not spoiled, that's congealed chicken fat from the broth. It goes liquid again when you heat it up.
