New Orleans Theme - Pam's main (1 of 2)This recipe for Green Gumbo was served at the New Orleans dinner, and was adapted from a recipe by Hank Shaw.

I made one change to this recipe. I boiled the ham hock for about 40 minutes and then cooked the greens in the same water for about 10 minutes before straining them out and using 10 cups of the resulting stock instead of the water in the recipe. That method was recommended in several other recipes, so I thought I would try it.

On Monday 6th July, Pam and Kerri served us up a delicious New Orleans themed dinner at Kerri’s house. Pam looked after the savoury dishes, while Kerri provided us with the sweet ones.
