Before I get into the TLC part, I just want you to know that I believe that everyone should own a cast iron skillet. I’m such a believer that I proudly own two; a large one that I purchased and a smaller, cute one that belonged to my husband’s grandma. These pans can so durable that the can last almost forever, if you take good care of it. This is why so many are passed along from generation to generation.
You can cook, fry, sear and bake everything, and I mean everything in your pan. I’m talking vegetables, meat, fish, pancakes, and corn bread. And these are just some examples! No matter what you put in it, keep in mind that because of the iron, it will heat unevenly. You can help the cooking process by moving the skillet around the burner to assure that you’re getting most of the inside of the pan hot. In no time, you’ll get the hang of it.
