Autin's Jambalaya Mix
Jambalaya is a Cajun/Creole dish made typically in a large pot (cast-iron) from a mixture of Cajun meats, rice, and seasonings blended to produce a delicious dish. Similar in many ways to Spanish paella, the term "jambalaya" is derived from the Spanish 'jamon' for ham. Jambalaya is pronounced 'jahm-buh-LIE-uh' or 'jum-buh-LIE-uh'.
The company started in 1910 in Houma, Louisiana - where today the Autin family is still united. Descendants of French settlers to Louisiana who for three generations have made high quality and authentic Cajun food products. The Autin's were known for high quality Cajun foods that were well seasoned. Cooked Cajun entrees, such as Shrimp Etouffee and Gumbo were popular dishes sold through retail and catering. By popular demand, the Autin's made available their authentic Cajun seasoning blends in 1986, Autin's Cajun Cookery.
