i can't seem to find the Cajun spice "File'" anywhere. Not a blend just straight File (ground sassafras leaves). Any ideas? Gumbo just isn't gumbo without it!

    Where do you live? I see it everywhere in Dallas. We have a local Penzey's here, marvelous source of fresh spices. They have a website.

    Here are a few resources:
