Old Bay Seasoning

It’s difficult to find commercially prepared seasonings without salt. Included a copycat version by Genius Kitchen. I copied her recipe and left out the salt. Note this seasoning has black pepper, white pepper and red pepper flakes. With making your own, you get to control the heat.


  • 2 Tbsp bay leaf powder (view how to make your own)
  • 1 Tbsp dry mustard
  • 2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp sweet or smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp white pepper
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 tsp ground allspice
  • ½ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • ½ tsp ground mace
  • ½ tsp ground cardamom
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon


  1. Blend all the ingredients together and store in an airtight container.
