Creole Gumbo

1 lb. fresh Shrimp
2 large onions, minced
2 Tbsp. flour
1/2 lb. ham, cut in chunks
1 Tbsp. celery, chopped
1/2 tsp. salt
2 sprigs thyme
2 Tbsp. gumbo file
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp. lard
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb. stewing veal, cut in small pieces
1/2 tsp. pepper
3 bay leaves
1 pint fresh Oysters
1 Tbsp. parsley

Shell and clean the Shrimp. Put shells in 2 quarts water and boil for 5 minutes; then strain water through a colander into another pot. Melt the lard in a Dutch oven and brown the minced onions and garlic in it over a slow flame. Stir in flour and brown it; then add the cut up veal, ham, pepper, celery, bay leaves, salt, parsley and thyme. Pour in the water saved from the Shrimp shells. Add 1 quart water and boil 1/2 hour. Add the Oysters and Shrimp, boil another 15 minutes. Add the file and Worcestershire sauce. Cook 5 minutes longer. Serve hot over rice.
