love me some duck gumbo with a dark chocolate looking roux
^^^^^^^^That's when its gumbo

Just realized I have thawed enough birds gonna have to make 2 big pots.... Darn the luck . I freeze a ton of it and take it on hunting and camping trips. Always a big hit without a lot of cooking and clean up

I like the okra in my gumbo!

I will skip the duck in lieu of chicken and sausage though!

Awsome. Got a pot simmering on the stove now. It's Shoveler, so not sure what to think about it. I guess we'll see.

If you soaked em in salt water they will be great no mater what the puddler used. Shovelers are what I use 99% of the time and I can never make enough

Yes soaked them in salt water for three days. Changed the water out once. It was pretty good. Might have over powered it with the sausage cause even the duck tasted like sausage. But all in all it was pretty dern good. I'll definitely cook it again.

Good stuff, but...

"Gumbo" by definition is ONLY Okra because Gumbo is the African word for okra.

Three things:

It can't be called gumbo without okra
You have to brown up your okra, or it just ain't right
Never cook file (sassafras) in the soup because it becomes bitter, add it to the bowl.

Would y'all like to know what a "Porch Monkey" really is?

They are a Creole that is a mixture of the Pourch Creek indian tribe from the Alabama Delta with Blacks and French.

Thus, "Pourch Monkey" is the correct and original.

How bout "Coon ***", ain't what folks think either.

So many things get lost these days, like the reason God gave us Yaupon Holly.
