Diva Rambling: Southern Girls Know….

One thing a Southern Girl knows is how to cook the best dishes in a cast iron skillet.  Many of you may be afraid to try it but here is how to get one ready for tasty cooking.  I use my cast iron dutch oven instead of a slow cooker.

What you SHOULD do
  1. Season it when you get it.Even pre-seasoned cast iron can do with some extra protection. To season your pan, heat it up on the stovetop until its smoking hot, then rub a little oil into it and let it cool. …
  2. Clean it after each use. … usually a paper towel and a bit of warm water will do the trick (Never, Never put it in a dishwasher!!!!) 
  3. Re-season it. …a little oil and a paper towel does the trick
  4. Fry, Sear,  and Roast in it. …I bake cornbread and other delicious treats in mine as well.
  5. Don’t let it stay wet.
