one can use canola oil as well as butter to make the roux. pre cut the onions, celery, bell peppers. At the magic moment that the roux looks like a dark peanut butter, add the onions to cool it quickly and stop it from burning. carmelize then add the rest of the trinity. add water after this is cooked a bit then add the chicken. OUr family cooks the chicken with the bones to add more flavor. We also crack an egg for each person into the end of the cooking or serve the gumbo with rice and potatoe salad in the gumbo.
