Really don't know, Javal, never had any of it except maybe when I didn't know it. But if you can lay a hand on a from-scratch gumbo recipe, it will be there.

I'm reasonably certain that is chunked or sliced and, from what I understand, there is something in the juice (seeds or flesh?) that thickens.

Mobile told me once that the plant is native to Africa, and that the seeds were smuggled over; and then from plantation to plantation.

Consulted Adele Davis. She doesn't mention gumbo and it's a bit late to start leafing through cookbooks. She does mention sauteed and in a really horrible sounding soup. Healthy food? Perish the thought.
