6,800 Pound Gumbo Breaks Guinness World Record
Before Duke and Temple took the field at Thursday's Independence Bowl, chef John Folse brought out his 1,068-gallon pot, and a couple paddles, and whipped up a 6,800-pound gumbo!
The massive amount of gumbo filled 11,000 bowls that were sold for $5 each with proceeds going to the Fisher House Foundation to provide housing for families of patients in military and Veterans Administration medical centers.
So, what exactly goes into a 6,800-pound gumbo? A lot of seafood that's what!
- 983 pounds of shrimp
- 590 pounds of catfish
- 299 pounds of crab
- 262 pounds of alligator
- 111 pounds of oysters
- 33 pounds of crawfish
