Cooking with cast iron
With nonstick cooking surfaces proving toxic, cast iron is back in fashion. It lasts through generations with minimal maintenance - a real old-fashioned success story.
Vegetarians and vegans in particular can benefit from the iron released during cooking in cast iron.
Getting your own ironmongery
If you can't inherit your family's cast iron yet, what to do? Remember, violence is never the answer!
However, people cook less these days and most people do not know how to cook with cast iron. (Eew, look at that heavy old dirty looking cast iron pan at the bottom of that drawer!)
So cast iron is often cast off. I went on high alert, and guess what I found at our charity shop?
Both pans, under $20.
Happy home cooking, everyone!
