Take your time and keep stirrin' so you don't burn.
Be careful. Remember:
Roux= Cajun Napalm

It's not just for Cajun cookery ... a key ingredient in many cooking disciplines is the roux (heck - if you've ever made gravy, you've made a roux as a base). Cajun foods tend to use 3 types of roux - light/medium, a darker red/brown, and black ... different roux for differnet purposes. Different fats are used to achieve different flavor bases in the roux ... butter is common in French and Italian cooking... lard and sometimes bacon fat are traditional in other cuisines, and fat renderings and juice from cooked meats in most gravies. Most important thing in getting a good roux ... constant stirring to keep things smooth, cook the flour flavor out (undercooking will produce a roux where the raw flour flavor is too predominant), and don't burn it. Cajun napalm indeed ... take care to keep the roux in the pan and off your skin. Bon Appetit!
