Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
You can add okra to this if you’d like. Add it when you add the Holy Trinity. If you want to add okra to this you’ll need to add a little extra water since the okra will thicken things up a bit and this gumbo is already pretty thick.
You can cook this in a crock pot! Cook the same way replacing the first 4 hours on the stove with 5-6 hours on high in the crock pot.
