    Wow that actually sounds easier than I would have thought,and that is a lot of stuff to put in it!

    My work colleague Michelle is from New Orleans so I showed her this article. She confirms you don't use the file and okra at the same time. She said it's because both are thickeners and if you use both at the same time your gumbo will be too thick. She also said she has known Kermit Ruffins (whom you quoted) since elementary school! It's a small gumbo world.

    That is interesting! I suppose if you wanted to use both okra and file, you could always just add more broth?
