Ingredients (1)

  • Small branches from a sassafras tree


From tree to fridge in four easy steps.


  1. 1Cut small branches from a sassafras tree in fall before the leaves start turning color.
  2. 2Wash the leaves. Hang the branches in a cool, shady place to dry slowly. Don’t dry the leaves in bright sunlight, which can cause fading.
  3. 3Remove the dried leaves from the stems, discarding the stalks.
  4. 4Crush the leaves by hand, then grind in a clean coffee grinder until a fine, green powder is formed. Sift the powder and store the filé powder refrigerated in a well-sealed jar.
