Discover the Heart of Cajun Cooking with Our Gourmet Roux

Welcome to CajunGrocer.com, where we celebrate the essence of Cajun cuisine with our premium selection of roux. Recognized as the foundation of many Cajun dishes, roux imparts depth and flavor to gumbo, stews, and sauces. Our curated assortment of Cajun roux, especially our convenient jar roux options, is perfect for home chefs aiming to recreate the authentic taste of Louisiana effortlessly.

The Convenience of Jar Roux

While making roux from scratch is a labor of love, it can be time-consuming and requires constant attention. For those who love cooking but are short on time, we recommend using high-quality jar roux. It offers the same rich flavor and color as homemade roux without the extensive prep work. Ideal for busy cooks, our jar roux selections ensure your gumbo and other dishes have that authentic Cajun base with minimal effort.

Recommended Product: Savoie's Old Fashioned Dark Roux

Savoie's Old Fashioned Dark Roux is our top pick for a traditional gumbo base. This jar roux saves you time without compromising on the depth of flavor needed for a genuine Cajun gumbo. Its dark, rich consistency is perfect for creating complex and hearty dishes that taste like they've been simmering for hours.

How to Use Jar Roux for Gumbo

  1. Start with the Basics: Begin your gumbo by sautéing the "holy trinity" of Cajun cuisine - onion, celery, and bell pepper.
  2. Add the Roux: Stir in Savoie's Old Fashioned Dark Roux to your sautéed vegetables. The quantity depends on your preference for thickness and depth of flavor.
  3. Combine Ingredients: Add your broth, meats, and seasonings, then let the gumbo simmer to allow the flavors to meld beautifully.
  4. Serve and Enjoy: Once your gumbo has reached the desired consistency and flavor, serve it hot over rice.
