This product is composed of sassafras leaves, also known as gumbo file. Harvested sustainably from an area of my woodlands composed of mostly sassafras. They were harvested in September of 2022; air dried and ground by an industrial food-grade grater. This is an essential ingredient in authentic gumbo; for flavor and texture. It can also be used as a seasoning or in a rub mix for meat or fish. Use it as a thickening agent in soups. You can also make a soothing, pleasantly aromatic tea that will warm you up and bring health benefits to you on a cold day.

Hello! My name is Saul. I am a chef, seasoned forager, and a certified mushroom identification expert through Mushroom Mountain. I have over 5 years experience of working with wild foods throughout their seasons. I am based in rural western Pennsylvania. I focus on foraging plants that are invasive in my area to help out the natives. I process my bounty in ways that are unique and may be of value to chefs or adventurous individuals. I have a dehydrator and an industrial food-grade grater to powder dehydrated mushrooms and plant matter with ease. Everything I sell is harvested, processed, packaged, and shipped by me from start to finish. Everything I sell has been tested over the years; from effective medicinal qualities to delicious culinary possibilities. I hope to give an opportunity for my excess mushroom harvests and invasive plant matter a purpose that helps out the land by removing them from taking over the your table and take hold of your palate.
