  • "First you make a roux!" In large black iron skillet, add oil and cook at 350 degrees or medium fire
  • Add MAGIC SWAMP DUST and mushrooms, and pepper then bring back to a boil
  • Stir in flour, allow to brown, but not to burn or stick, stirring and scraping pot frequently
  • When mixture is a beautiful golden brown, turn off fire and let cool so oil comes to top and the browned flour packs to bottom ***Note: Roux will get a little darker after fire is turned off - due to pot heat.***
  • After cooled to room temperature, remove oil from top, saving browned roux then put roux in a bowl to add back to pot later
  • Add 10 Quarts of water and onions and boil until tender
