Most commonly used in gumbos, File powder, also known as Gumbo File, is dried sassafras leaves which are ground to a dense powder and used as a thickening agent.  It is most commonly stirred into the pot at the very end of cooking, off the heat, and allowed to stand for 5 minutes or so to thicken before serving.
