How to cook with cast iron

February 4, 2022

A little suprising secret..

Keegs, my husband, is actually the one who got me hooked on cooking with cast iron!

This is one thing I am so thankful for because from the outside, cast iron cooking looks scary... not sure why, but it does!

We use ours every day and wow I am thankful for the flavor it brings.

Here are some simple steps to get you started with cast iron cooking:

Use fat, oil and more fat

  • This seasons up the pan so it is non-stick and delicious.
  • I would suggest our pastured bacon when you start to get really yummy fats into your pan and future meals!

Avoid tomatoes or other acidic foods right away

  • Don't worry to much about this but for the 1st month avoid cooking with these foods so your pan stays oiled.

Cook with your skillet as much as you can

  • Eggs for breakfast, leftovers for dinner, sautéed veggies supper
  • The more you use it, the better it becomes... trust me!

Don't stress about a clean skillet

  • We leave ours on the stove but if that bothers you just do a quick wipe down... no soap though!

Really cast iron cooking is not hard and worth it 100%.

No weird chemicals in this non-stick pan halleluiah!

Happy cast iron cooking
