Seasoning cast iron
Most people inherit their cast iron cookware but some get to buy new. Honestly if you’re lucky enough to inherit yours you are blessed.
How to clean or season cast iron cookware
- NEVER EVER USE WATER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES
- Pour in a half cup of coarse Kosher salt. Take a good size piece of aluminum rounded to a rough ball and scrub and food particles away. Then discard salt.
- Pour in a 1/4 cup of oil ( I like olive oil but you can use any kind even lard) use a soft cloth to rub this in and all over cookware. Do not use paper towels they tend to shed.
- Bake at 450 for 30 min
