Seasoning Your Cast Iron Skillet

How to Season & Care for Your Cast Iron Skillet

I’ve been ranting and raving about how much I LOVE using cast iron cookware so I figured I should probably tell you how to season and care for it!!  I searched the web for an entertaining video to describe the seasoning and care process and I found a cute little video on YouTube by Hilah!  She’s funny and I love her dry sense of humor.  I figured if we are going to watch an instructional video about seasoning cast iron, why not find an entertaining one!  Eventually, I’ll video my own, until that time… I’m using hers!

Check it out below…

Now that you have finished watching this video… let me tell you all the reasons I why I love cooking with cast iron….

2. They NEVER have to be replaced.  If they get a bit rusted… season again!
3. It can be a family heirloom!
4. The flavor magic that happens when cooking with them is miraculous!
5. There is no better way to make fried chicken!
6. They CAN be used as a weapon, haha.
7. They are versatile… baking, frying, simmering! You can use them for EVERYTHING!
8. They are non-stick if seasoned properly.

I could go on, but I think that sums it up pretty well!  My grandma’s cast iron skillets are so well seasoned that she NEVER has to put oil in them.  I have already told her that I’d like her to pass them down to me!!  She’s been using them for over 50 years!  Her mother gave them to her as a wedding present.  It creates a really great story!

Also another tip I will reiterate from the video… DO NOT EVER USE SOAP TO WASH YOUR CAST IRON SKILLETS OR COOKWARE!

On a side note… birthday and Christmas presents… Cast Iron PLEASE!  Thanks! 😉
