Cooking With Cast Iron

I have always loved cooking with cast iron and use my cast iron skillets every day. It's a trait and a skill that I inherited from my mother. Yesterday, while sitting in the waiting room of Silas's prosthetic doctor in Joplin, I had the good fortune of stumbling across the following article in an old issue of Martha Stewart's LIVING magazine:

Shaping History: Vintage Cast-Iron Baking Pan

It prompted me to get out my own "vintage" reproductions and try them again with fresh-gained knowledge on how to use them properly to get the best results. That resulted in these little beauties...

  1. My grandmother used cast iron pans for all of her cooking. I remember that she also had the ear of corn pan. I don't know what happened to that pan after she passed but I would love to have it today. Such sweet memories from a little pan.:)
