      crab-boil spices

      can be prepared in 45 minutes or less.
      >From Maryland to Georgia, crabs are a prized part of the
      African-American diet. If the crabs need to be boiled before
      other steps in preparation (as are the pickled shrimp above), a
      commercial crab boil such as Old Bay seasoning is often used.
      For the lucky few, though, there’s homemade crab boil, an
      all-purpose seasoning that, besides for shrimp and crab, can
      also be used for crawfish.

      1/4 cup pickling spices
      2 tablespoons mustard seeds
      2 tablespoons whole black peppercorns
      1 tablespoon celery seeds
      2 tablespoons dried hot red pepper flakes
      2 teaspoons ground ginger
      5 bay leaves
      2 teaspoons dried oregano
      1 tablespoon minced dried chives
      1/4 cup sea salt

      In a food processor combine all ingredients and pulse until
      mixture forms a coarse powder. Crab-boil spices keep in a
      well-sealed container for several months in a cool, dark place.

      Makes about 1 cup.
