How To….Season a Cast Iron Skillet
Thank God for America’s Test Kitchen. Last summer for our two year anniversary, Ben got me a cast iron skillet. Most girls might not understand the significance and appreciation I had for this gift. It was cast iron. Enameled or not, I was excited. He did awesome.
Although Lodge cast iron typically comes “pre-seasoned”, it’s not enough seasoning (in my opinion) to grill up a burger without it still sticking, or a panini to slide right off. A good, well seasoned cast iron pan comes with time, lots of cooking, lots of grease, and proper maintenance. And maintaining a proper cast iron skillet was something I needed to learn. Here is where ATK comes in. Bless them and their help for challenged such as me.
