300) What is Old Bay Spice and where can I get it?
bullet

Old Bay Spice was created in Baltimore by a German-Jewish refugee named Gustav C. Brunn in 1939. It is a mixture of Celery Salt, Paprika, Mustard, Red Pepper, Bay Leaves, Cloves, Allspice, Ginger, Mace, Cardamom and Cinnamon. It can be purchased at grocery stores and big market stores like Wal-Mart. At the grocery store it is usually stocked in the seafood department and not the spice section. It is now considered a kosher product by the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America. It is produced by McCormick who bought the rights from the original owners.

bullet

Alton stated in Post 325.1.1 that you can substitute any crab boil or seafood seasoning.

You can get more info about Old Bay at McCormick's site.

If you can't find it, the following recipe will supposedly be very near to it:
OLD BAY SEASONING

1 tablespoon celery seeds
1 tablespoon whole black peppercorns
6 bay leaves
1/2 teaspoon whole cardamoms
1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
4 whole cloves
1 teaspoon sweet Hungarian paprika
1/4 teaspoon mace

1) In a spice grinder or small food processor, combine all of the ingredients.
2) Grind well and store in a small glass jar.
3) Best if used within 6 months (date your jar).

Or order it from Netgrocier.com.

bullet301) What is Jalapeņo Spice and where can I get it?
bullet

Jalapeņo seasoning is a mixture that's available at many markets across the U.S. You can substitute half of the called for amount of ground jalapeno if you can't find it. (Post 41.1)

bullet

Here is a site that sells Jalapeņo Seasoning: Conrad Rice Mill (about 2/3rds the way down the page)

bullet302) Where can I find Kosher Salt?
bullet

Kosher salt can usually be found in either the spice section or the ethnic section of your food store. It may be hard to find when the weather turns cold. People use it to de-ice their sidewalks and driveways during the winter months.

bullet

You can get more info about Kosher salt from Morton's web site.
