the Iron Lady

Not Thatcher…don’t get me going (and no, I’ve not seen the film, I lived through that time).

An introduction to my cast iron and their provenance. Perhaps not that cool but it’s a bit like Antiques Roadshow meets ::snore::

      It’s okay. Not as well-made as my more modern (50 or less years) stuff BUT I’d give it to you in a heartbeat–but not my antique! I love that my great-grandmother used that rough-looking one over 100 years ago.

    How cool! We always had a couple of those two. I think I might have one or two deep in my pantry. I should try cooking some time! 🙂 My dad was always fussy about not using harsh soap so as not to remove the natural oils & talked about oiling them so they wouldn’t get rusty.

      You actually GET iron in the food when you cook with cast iron. It’s healthy and things don’t stick but it’s healthier than teflon/non-stick coatings that come off and go into your food, too.
