OLD BAY Steamed Blue Crabs

This is where it all began for OLD BAY® Seasoning six decades ago. Maine has its lobsters, California has its wines and Louisiana has its hot sauces. In Maryland, the pride and joy of the Chesapeake Bay coastline is the prized blue crab. Steaming crabs is a social event – a celebration of family and friends, where everybody gets a little messy and has a lot of fun. And OLD BAY is there for every gathering, like a good friend. Blue crabs are it’s raison d’être (ask your French philosopher friends), and the two just go together as if they were made for each other (they were, actually).
