Roux Made Easy!!
In Louisiana, a cold day is known a good "Gumbo" Day. Well Gumbo season is upon us and I will be cooking big pots of it at my house. When I moved to Denver, I quickly found out that you can not find roux in a jar at your nearest grocery store. In fact, you can't find it in any grocery store. I spent years having it shipped from Louisiana. Anyone who visited me brought me roux and cajun seasoning.
I'm happy that the stores now carry my favorite seasoning, but still no roux. After years of intimidation, I set out to make my own roux. How hard can burning flour be? Well, it turned out to be very hard. I was doing it on the stove. While it does need to be very dark, there's a fine line between burnt and too burnt. I gave up for a couple of more years.
