My family has always used your spice for crabs

My family has always used your spice for crabs, many family members have since passed on but enjoying crabs with your spices always allows me to relive all those special crab nights with family and friends
This is the one that the restaurants use!

This is the one that made me put down the "Old Bay" seasoning, and I think if you try it, chances are you just might do it too!
Great Crabs in Texas

Not a well known secret, but Maryland crabs often come from Texas! We get them here very cheap and JO is the best seasoning ever! We pick a couple of tubs every time we visit our family in Baltimore! JO is also great on Crawfish! We buy the big containers and fill up our small spice containers so we always have some in our cars when we travel around!
Excellent Crab Seasoning

I am originally from Baltimore Maryland but now live in the "Low Country" (Charleston, SC). There are not a lot of places that steam crabs, so my husband steams them for me. This seasoning is perfect for Blue Crabs!

Being a B'more expat I really missed my steamed shrimp and crabs. everything down here is boiled. On my first trip back home I loaded up on all my JO favorites, now I am the "Steam King" and people who try my Maryland style crabs and shrimp have made me the talk of the town, they all want to know what my secret is and I tell them it all starts with JO Spices. One good thing down here is I get #1 jimmies live for around $12 a dozen so we have crabs all the time. Also whenever I talk to the local seafood suppliers I make them aware of your products, this would be a great market for you. Thanks for keeping home close.

When we moved to Florida from Arbutus, Md. I brought alone 20 lbs. of this seasoning, ran out this summer and figured that was it, I found other brands down here , but it just was not the same. I had my son ship it to me from up north and he told me about your web site.Now I steam em just like I did for years. My neighbors down here finally get to enjoy crabs the way they should be, hot and steamed.Love this stuff!
