Mammy's Creole Rice

Mammy sure did have a lot of duties at Tara.  Here is her recipe for Creole Rice!  This probably tasted good along with those deviled crabs.

1 large onion, sliced
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 1/2 Tbs fat
3/4 Tbs flour
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 c water
1 1/2 c tomatoes
1 1/2 c cooked peas
1/2 Tbs vinegar
1/4 tsp sugar
1 1/4 c cooked fresh shrimp OR canned shrimp
1 1/2 Tbs chili powder
2 c hot boiled rice

Saute' onion and celery in fat until browned.  Stir in flour and salt and slowly add the water.  Simmer for 15 minutes, stirring frequently.  Add tomatoes, peas, vinegar, sugar, shrimp, and chili powder and continue cooking ten minutes longer.  Place rice in a large deep serving plate and pour creole mixture over it.   Makes 6 servings.
