What is............

GUMBO?!?!?!

I had a neighbor that was form Louisiana and when i was little he said Gumbo had anything in it you couldnt marry. Never did tell me what it was really then here over the summer he moved back so that leaves me with the question.

I think the real quistion, is what ISNT in gumbo.

Basically,

gumbo has a Roux base (flour and water) (this is where all gumbos start, and from here they seperate) you have a few basic types of gumbo, Seafood, Sausage, Turkey, Chicken...and then I have had duck, venesin, alligator, any type of meat you want to prepare basically. I do not care much for seafood gumbo, but I love seafood...just dont like that type of gumbo.

Gumbo is um, watery might be the wrong word, but um. it does have to be served ina bowl, it is served over rice, as are most local dishes down here, it has a large portion of vegetables in it, and a very healthy portion of meat. Gumbo is slowly brought to aboil, then slow cooked for a few hours in a large pot, and basically, anything that you think might make it taste better is thrown in, pretty common things are celery, onions, ocra, are probably the 3 most common vegetables I have run into dif peoples gumbos. Most people also cook it using a stock from whatever meat they are using....i.e. we cook a turkey gumbo after every T-Day and X-MAs, after we have cleaned the carcass of most of the meat, (we oly put the dark meat in the gumbo, the white meat we normally save for sandwiches) we put all the bones in to the gumbo, when it is mostly nothing but liquid and onions, and boil that down for a few hours to pull out as much flavor as possible from the bones. then we just start adding stuff. :P

I have enver cooked my own, I lack the equipment to cook one. (Dont even have a pot big enough to do it over the stove, much less a propane burner for a large gumbo)

I don't know the exact history of it, but more than likely, gumbo started the same way that most of our foods down here did. What was easily accessible, and cheap. Taht is why most of our foods contain a bit of everything, the things that are in it are things that msot coon@sses would have at the house year round, things that they would be growing in their garden and meat they would have from hunting.

Aye alligator gumbo. <---has alot of Coon@ss in his family.. :P

If you have never had alligator, it really DOES taste like chicken, except that it is a tougher meat, heavier. Whereas frog also tastes like chicken, but is greasy/slimy. kinda gotta pick what meat ya want based on the texture since they all taste the same. :P

If the right person makes it, Gumbo may be one of the best things you will ever eat.

What they said....I have never mastered the gumbo. Never have tried to cook it. I guess it's time to start. My best dish that I make is chili. My dad tought me. My dad can cook any thing and make it good.

My wife makes a mean gumbo. The only culinary dish I have mastered so far is salad and McDonalds.

Well I hate to brag, but I think I cook the best smoked brisket in the southern usa, otherwise I can't even boil water without messing it up, but when it comes to brisket, after 66 years I finally think I have it right.

I plan on cooking up at least one, or maybe two here at the house , and bring it already to eat when we get there. Reason being, I marinate for at least 24 hours, and then it takes at least 24 hours to cook.
