Can anyone from South Louisiana tell me how to make a gumbo with roux that you buy in a jar?

I am going to attempt to cook a duck, hen, and sausage gumbo for the first time and I’m not really sure how to do it. I’ve been looking for recipes online but all of them include how to make the roux from scratch. I just wanted to use Kary’s Dark Roux. Can anyone tell me how to make the gumbo with the Kary’s roux? Thanks.

All you have to do is put your jar roux in the pan first and start with you ingredients. Usually I make it from scratch, but you can put it in the pan and add the onions, bell pepper, celery and garlic. Sauté until the onions become translucent and the vegetables are tender. Usually we have beef cubes in ours to add flavor. But to answer your question just start out with it in the pan and heat it and go from there.

What are some colleges in Louisiana that offer Forensic Siences as a major?

or criminal justice? Also what are some LA. colleges that offer minors in music?

Colleges in Louisiana that offer Forensic Science as a major include Loyola, Our Lady of the Lake, and McNeese State. Of those, Loyola is by far the best.
Colleges in LA that offer Criminal Justice as a major are listed here: http://www.uscollegesearch.org/louisiana-criminal-justice-colleges.html (under "Additional Louisiana Criminal Justice Colleges"–starting with Bossier Parish CC)
Most colleges, especially large ones, will have a music minor.

If I open up a crawfish restraunt that serves Louisiana style crawfish $7.99/ lb. Would you be willing to pay?

My restaurant would also serve blue crabs, dungenees crabs, poor boy sandwiches, raw oyster, jambalaya, etcc…. everything Louisiana style. You will get a choice of Mild, Med, Hot, plus 4 different cajun flavoring for your crawfish, every 2 pound you order, you get a free corn of cob and 1 Sausage.

New question:
If I decided to start off slowly and cook them from home by the pound order over the phone, are you willing to pick it up $5.00/lb?

Bring it on Dannyboy I’m getting Hongry just thinking about it!

New Flash….Home Cooking Dangerous?

To all my Ladies out there slaving away in the kitchen, cease with all cooking activity immediately until further notice. If your family must eat, have a can of black olives. Sardines are acceptable, but only with Louisiana Hot Sauce. Apparently home cooking is more dangerous than restaurant food. I know that you will be troubled by these dark times. But have faith, you soon will be back in the holiest room in your temple. I swear it!

theshadowknows,
Don’t forget the red wine, you’ll need them to fight all those free radicals.

Lol, my home cooking is just fine. There’s a good balance of the 4 basic food groups. Sure, too much red meat isn’t good for you, but I’m not giving up my steak and potatoes. ( Medium rare, thank-you.)

It’s like anything else, you use moderation. Watch your butter, fatty sauces, calorie laden desserts; but good food is one of the pleasures of life.
