Old Bay Seasoning was founded more than 60
years ago: a man named Gustav Brunn arrived in the United States from
Germany with a hand-held spice grinder and a dream of starting a spice
business. In 1939, Brunn settled in Baltimore and developed his secret
recipe, which would later become Old Bay Seasoning. This unique blend of
more than a dozen herbs and spices was created for a population passionate
about steamed crabs, and has since become synonymous with the Chesapeake Bay
and its locals.
a staple enjoyed only by a lucky few along the Chesapeake Bay, Old Bay
Seasoning is now available across the country to anyone who wishes to
experience a distinctive big, bold taste. Best known as the definitive
seasoning for crab, shrimp, and other seafood dishes.
Ingredients: Celery Salt (Salt, Celery Seed),
Spices (Including Mustard, Red Pepper, Bay [Laurel] Leaves, Cloves, Allspice
[Pimento], Ginger, Mace, Cardamom, Cinnamon), and Paprika.
