First, You Make A Roux

Dark cajun roux ~ chocolate colored roux ~ made with 1 cup oil and 1 cup flour, in the old Griswold black iron ... stir, stir, stir for about 45 minutes over low heat ~ done deal. I like to turn my roux out into a bowl as soon as it's done, so it stops cooking ... let cool, then into fridge until ready to make the gumbo this weekend. Without a good dark roux, what would gumbo be but just a bowl of soup.
