Yield

Ingredients

5 LBS MARGARINE
1 GAL +2 CUPS ONIONS (Chopped)
1/2 GAL +1 CUP CELERY (Chopped)
3/4 GALLON FLOUR
1 -1/2 CUPS GRANULATED GARLIC
1/4 CUP WHITE PEPPER

1/2 LBS LOBSTER BASE
1 GALLON OYSTERS (Unwashed and a full 8 LBS per gallon)
1 CUP DRIED PARSLEY FLAKES

Method
In a large braizer and over high heat add margarine, onions and celery. Stir constansly, cook vegetables until onions turn clear and are limp. (About 10 minutes, do not brown onions.) Add flour, and cook roux to a “Light” color. (See Basic Roux Chart.) Stir constansly, the bottom of the braiser is very hot and will burn the flour if left unattended. Remove from heat, add seasonings and mushrooms, stir for a couple of minutes to allow some of the heat to escape. (This elimates the possibility of the roux from burning also the mushrooms wll weep some of their water.)
