With the resonant flavors of maple syrup and sweet, dried bell peppers leading the way, our Cajun Maple Seasoning delivers great Cajun flavors with a northern twist that echoes back through their history. Built on the foundation of sharp onion, savory garlic, and earthy paprika, this blend’s sweet start fades to a pleasant bitterness thanks to the punchy combination of ground celery seed and eucalyptic bay leaves. There’s a heat that’s present from start to finish, but it’s never overly aggressive or unmanageable. Soft lemon-pepper from basil and thyme finish the flavors, lifting the palate before letting it fall back, onto the peppery licorice of Mexican oregano. We blend our Cajun Maple Seasoning in small batches in our facility, so we can guarantee our customers receive the freshest and most flavorful products possible.

Originally called Acadians, Cajuns were French immigrants living in the Canadian maritime province of Nova Scotia, then known as Acadia, in a colony they had established in 1604. More than 100 years later, Great Britain acquired Acadia in the 1713 Treaty of Utrecht, which was negotiated to bring an end to a war that started in Europe twelve years earlier. The British, with all property rights to Acadia, tried to force the Acadians to swear loyalty to the British crown and convert from Catholicism to Protestantism. Forty years later, resistance to British demands grew so great that the British began expelling Acadians forcibly from the region, putting them on boats to the West Indies or back to France. Some Acadians fled south, toward another established French colony in Louisiana. These Acadians, or “Cajuns”, settled in to the boggy terrain around New Orleans and developed their own culture, hunting, trapping, and cooking their way into a celebrated part of American culture.

 

Tips From Our Kitchen

 

Try Cajun Maple Seasoning on grilled snapper or tucked into the breading for fried oysters. This blend works wonderfully on most seafood, so toss over shrimp kabobs or dust this over scallops and sear. Stir this into thick soups or stews; it can withstand a longer cooking time and would be wonderful in a fricassee, or as the seasoning in etouffee. Use this to flavor red beans and rice; the sweet flavor of this blend add a playful twist to a savory standard. It would be delicious ground into a standard pork sausage for jambalaya. Or go vegetarian! We’ve used this to make a stellar vegetarian gumbo (with vegan meatballs, no less). It’s terrific on green beans and roasted cauliflower, or as the seasoning for blackened tempeh. Replace the original blend in Cajun Grilled Sweet Potatoes with Cajun Maple Seasoning and dig in.

Our Cajun Maple is blended from maple sugar, paprika, garlic, onion, chipotle morita powder, black pepper, smoked hickory salt, organic red bell pepper, ground celery seed, cayenne, ground bay leaves, thyme, basil, and Mexican oregano.

Bourbon Molasses replacement Haven't liked any of the previous replacement offerings for Bourbon Molasses Rub. This fabulous gem works best for us. I used BMR on salmon. That is what I use this for, too. Mmmmmm. Yum, yum. :-)

Tasty Grilled Pork Chops We used the Cajun Maple Seasoning as a dry rub on pork chops o the grill. It had the right amount of sweetness without causing the usual flame-up from wet sauces. The Cajun seasoning had a nice zing without being over-powering. Will try this on other grilled meats!

Wonderful flavor used with my brined salmon This one is a winner! I'm a pescatarian and salmon & steelhead trout are some my family's and client's favorite seafood varieties. The Cajun maple spice blend was a hit at Thanksgiving. I typically go for salt free blends since I usually brine my fish, however this blend was well balanced and very flavorful. I enjoyed the blend with; - Salmon (wild and cultivated) - Sweet potatoes and yams - Gravlax (brine) - Smoked salmon grilled cheese ...I would love a salt free version, 'tho!
