How to clean a very dirty pan!
If you’re like us, you just love cooking with cast iron. The even heat, the versatility of stovetop to oven cooking, the ability to fry, saute, bake, and more in just one pan…it all makes cast iron the ultimate choice in cookware. But with all that power comes immense responsibility. And that is where cast iron loses us. The cleaning, care, and seasoning of cast iron skillets is just too much work. Luckily, we’ve discovered this genius video that makes cooking with cast iron a breeze! You have got to check it out. Cast iron takes on the flavors of whatever it’s cooking, so a pan that’s used frequently for savory recipes is not a great vehicle for sweet things and dessert. Overly acidic foods, such as tomato sauce, can be too harsh for a cast iron pan. Not only will the acidity of the liquid potentially react with exposed metal causing damage to the pan, it can impart a metallic taste to the food.
