Make roux: In a large heavy duty sauce pot, heat butter and oil.  Whisk in flour, adding enough flour until you reach a consistency like wet peanut butter.  Turn heat down to low or medium and keep whisking mixture as it heats until it reaches a deep peanut butter color.   This will take a while.  When roux is ready, ready add okra, red peppers, yellow peppers, onions and celery.  Cook 15 minutes.  Heat stock separately.


Add tomatoes and tomato paste to the roux mixture and cook 10 minutes.  Stir in Worcestershire sauce, garlic and Creole Dry Spice Seasoning.   When well combined , add enough hot stock create gumbo consistency you prefer.  Bring mixture to a boil, then lower heat to a simmer and cook 30 minutes.  Add turkey , cook 15 minutes, then taste for seasoning.  Serve with rice.  Garnish with additional turkey and chopped parsley if desired.  Makes: 22 cups
