Alright to all ye who brutalized the color of my roux in my duck gumbo the last time. This is for you. I learned a fool proof way to make roux without worrying about burning it and it gets darkkkkk. This roux is for you hayraker!

I tried the Kary's store bought roux after a sugesteion from a Villa Platte Cajun french teacher and Hogman on here. It was off the chain and easy. So I set out to replicate that. Easy as you please and they are exactly the same. half unsalted butter and half flour. Melt butter, stir in flour and set in a 350 400 degree oven, sstir every 30 mins to a hour. 3 or 4 hours and you will see it getting dark and a delicious nutty aroma. When you get to "your" desired dark, you're done. I went a step further and decided to can mine. Now that I have figured it out, I am going to do about 4 pounds of butter and floour and can it all. That way everytime I wish to make a gumbo for the next 2 or 3 years, I don't have to fool with the roux. I can take it on hunting trips and make fresh gumbo on the trip really easily. Lastly, Christmas gifts. I can give these roux as gifts to friends and family.

Tag for later, but got to ask...really exactly the same? Butter and flour doesn't seem like it would have much flavor. No broth or stock?

No broth or stock for the roux. All that comes later when you make the gumbo. This is just a recipe and proceedure for the roux.

Oven roux has been around for a long time.

I still prefer to make mine at the stove. And your roux isn't dark...that is a medium cooked roux!

It is the exact same color as a herchy's chocolate bar and that is as dark as I want it. Be it medium or not thats as far as I was going to take it. It was leaving that nutty flavor and headed to a burnt flavor in a hurry.
