Taking a shortcut this time. Do you pour the oil off before using?

I wanna see the roux. Open a jar and show me what’s inside. Does it need refrigeration?

I’m wondering if it would be worthwhile to make myself a jar.

Used it for years. One pint is enough foe 4-5 quart of gumbo. I pour off the oil and heat the jar in the microwave.

Do y’all buy roux because you can’t make a good roux? Is this roux better than y’all can make? Is it the 15 to 30 minutes you don’t spend stirring the homemade roux?

I can make good roux and I’m just not sure that canned refrigerated roux would be better than I can make.

I haven't bought it, but I have put some serious thought into it. It may only be 30 mins, but it sure seems a lot longer than that!

Bingo. Never make my own again. I've known experts who have failed a few times.

I'm big on making things myself if I can. I have made my own roux for years. The problem is when I didn't have time and had to use store bought roux, no one could tell the difference. Store bought roux is pretty good. It started to just feel like I was wasting 30 minutes to get the same product.

I will have to do some looking for the actual recipe and see if I can find it, but I saw Paul Prudhomme do a quick roux back in the day on his PBS show, and that’s how I do it all the time now a days. From start to finish, it takes about 4-7 min on the heat.

Get the pan and oil shimmering hot on high heat, almost to smoking. Then drop in your flour. Stir nonstop till you get the color you want. On that high heat it normally takes less then 5 min. But you need to have your vegetables prepped and ready to go to kill the roux, sometimes I’ll also add some stock at this point to make sure the roux stops cooking. Going over by 10-15 seconds can burn the roux, so be very attentive when doing this method.

If I find his recipe I will post it on here.

If anyone tries it let me know how it goes for you.

I'm starting to rethink my method of making roux. I can put pen to paper and come up with the answer to 278902 divided by 329, but I use a calculator instead. Why? Save time, easier, and you get the same answer. I have a buddy that uses store bough roux. His Gumbo is excellent.

Do y’all use store bought roux to thicken the gumbo after it’s simmering? That might be a factor...

A factor in what. All roux is used for the same thing.

I've used small amounts to thicken or add color to gravies.

Just wondering aloud. If my gumbo was too thin, I’d make more roux and stir it in to thicken the gumbo. With canned I could just open the jar and spoon it in.

It can take awhile to dissolve. I have put it in the blender with some stock.
