Whack, whack with a ruler across your knuckles from the nun. No carrots in a stock for gumbo.

I've never made chicken stock without carrots...leave them whole, and pull out to eat later while the gumbo is coming together.

How do I keep the okra from getting slimy?

Putting the okra into the roux works well.



Very important step to finishing your roux. Add the veggies, and esp the okra at this point, and cook their little hearts out. You should be able to cut off the fire in 2 mins or so, then keep stirring until all is calm. The veggies will cook, and you'll be pleasantly suprised with NO okra goo.

You right, Jambo. Sauté the okra in the roux as a cool down for a true, bona fide gumbo...as opposed to a thickened soup/ faux gumbo.

I do my okra and tomatoes with some onions and a little diced sausage in another pan and add back to pot. They wiped out 4 gals last night so I know it must have tasted like medicine.

AND - putting the okra in the trash works well too.
