Fall-Flavored Old Bay Caramel Seasoning Now Available

Pumpkin spice is getting a new fall-flavored friend…with Old Bay in it. McCormick & Company has released a new Old Bay Caramel seasoning, which it will sell online only for a limited time, the company announced earlier this week. The seasoning unites the 18 herbs and spices of the traditional Old Bay with “luscious caramel flavor for the perfect sweet-and-salty mix,” McCormick officials said in a news release.

“This blend is the perfect seasoning to have as we make the transition from summer to fall,” McCormick said. With autumn on the horizon, the seasoning is making its debut at just the right time, according to the company. Old Bay Caramel Seasoning is made in small batches and available for a limited time online only. A 2.5 ounce jar is $5.95.

“Sprinkle it over popcorn, use it to season chicken, seafood, or vegetables before cooking, or enjoy it in hot apple cider and your favorite baked goods.” Below you’ll see three recipes for Old Bay Caramel Seasoning, provided by McCormick:

Sweet and Savory Salmon: Preheat oven to 375°F. Brush 1 lb. salmon fillets with 1 tbsp. oil. Sprinkle with 1 tbsp. OLD BAY Caramel Seasoning. Bake 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
