Filé powder, sometimes called gumbo filé, (say fee-lay) will thicken a gumbo
and add a distinctive kick of flavor. It is a simple ingredient made from
ground sassafras leaves. That's all, nothing more.

So in the interest of domestic tranquillity, could anyone who has
familiarity with file powder tell me what theirs has in it?
I know it's OT - please respond to online2much at cox.net .
(Don't worry - we argue like this all the time. We bought our first set of
Encyclopaedia Britannica as wedding gifts for ourselves so we'd stop having
to call the 24-hour NY library's hotline...)
