Cast Iron Seasoning

2 thoughts on “Cast Iron Seasoning”

  1. I have a cast iron pan that belonged to my DH ( he is deceased) maternal grandmother. My parents had cast iron frying pans when I grew up, and so I knew how to care for them. I just use regular oil ( Canola, Virgin Olive Oil etc whatever I have on hand at the time.
    Sometimes if I am running low on oil, I heat up the pan and then pour about one heaping tablespoon of idoized salt and with 2-3 paper towels folded into a square, wipe the salt all around…..


    1. I have found the best non stick success you can have for seasoning cast iron is flax seed oil. When done, it feels like an enameled coating. Salt works to remove odors from the pan or hard to remove bits, plus puts a little salt on the food the next time you use it. 🙂
