I use Old Bay in more than just Crab Cakes so I like to mix up my own so I know exactly what is in the mix.

2 Tbsp
crushed bay leaves
2 Tbsp
celery seed
1 Tbsp
dry mustard, if prefer coleman's
2 Tbsp
freshly ground black pepper
2 tsp
ginger powder
2 tsp
paprika, sweet mild
1 tsp
freshly ground white pepper
1 tsp
allspice, ground
1 tsp
freshly grated nutmeg
1 tsp
clove, ground
1/2 tsp
red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp
mace, ground
1/2 tsp
cardamon, ground
1/4 tsp
cinnamon, ground


1Combine all ingredients in an airtight jar, mix thoroughly. I like to give it a twirl in the food processor just to make it a bit finer powder.

Keep sealed until ready to use.
2To give as a gift, place in a pretty jar, along with some recipes. This would look nice in a basket, maybe with some measuring spoons, and ingredients for one of the recipes you give. Enjoy
