Do you have a Cast Iron Skillet but have no idea how to clean it, cook with it, or store it??? I had all the same questions until my grandmother taught me everything about them! My favorite memory is when she taught me How to season a Cast Iron Skillet. Cast Iron Skillets are great for cooking and can be kept for generations. I never knew how much I would love them until lately. I am so glad I now know because I love cooking with them!
How to season a Cast Iron Skillet:
When you first get a cast iron skillet you need to season it for proper cooking purposes. Some cast iron skillets now come pre-seasoned, but most do not.
To season your cast iron skillet you will need vegetable oil, paper towel and foil.
Start by washing your skillet with soapy water, this is the only time you use soap on it.
Next take a paper towel and rub a thin layer of oil all over the skillet, inside and outside of it. Place the skillet upside down inside your oven. Line the bottom rack of your oven with foil. Turn your oven to 350 degrees and allow the skillet to “bake” for an hour. Turn the oven off and allow the skillet to cool in the oven.
Store the skillet in a dry place without any cover. It’s now ready to be used.
