Cast Iron Cooking
I received my first cast iron skillet this year for my birthday and was intimidated because I knew there was a special way to clean and care for it but I didn’t know what that was. The skillet set in my cabinet for 4 months until I developed the courage to tackle it. Much to my surprise and embarrassment it is really simply to care for. Hand wash, wipe dry and spray lightly with cooking oil, that’s it. I was told if you don’t care for them correctly they will rust and just be ruined and that turns out to be false, if it does rust all you need in a little steal wool and a lot of elbow grease. The friend who gave it to me also made the point of saying what a great weapon it would make because it is so heavy, she’s right about that. So be for warned, come into my kitchen and start trouble and you will get to meet my skillet. If you leave trouble out of it you are welcome to come in and join me for a meal anytime, I will even let you help clean up so that you can get over your own cast iron fears.
