CleaningThatOldRustyCast-IronCookWare~


For today's TipsFromtheGarden~ I found some tips that might
help anyone that might have an old Cast-Iron post that is rusty and is 
covered in black crud. However, I does make a huge difference
on where your Cast-Iron cookware was manufacturer. 
If you either have or found a well-made 
cast-iron piece, restoring it will be fairly easy.
Here are a few steps, on how you could tell if you have
 high quality Cast-Iron Cookware.
The Main thing that you want to look for in good quality Cast-Iron Cookware 
is that its manufactured by the Lodge Company in Tenn. US. Why?
Because the Company Lodge is the last U.S.  
Manufacturer to cast its own iron for all its cookware. 
So if you find some cast-iron cookware that is other than Lodge; it usually is
of an lower quality of Iron among other things. 
Some of the other marking that you might see that is quite different than 
the Lodge is at the 'throat' of the handle of and skillet-pan. also
the bottom of the pan, it may not look as finished. By looking more
thicker and clunkier; plus the edges of all the cookware won't have
a nice smooth finish. So if you happen to find  well made Cast-Iron cookware!
but it happens to be a bit rusty and full of black crud, restoring it shouldn't 
be to difficult. To remove rust, use a soap-free steel wool pad and 
shrub as much of the rust and black crud off as you can before 
you do the baking part. This way it will make it easier in the long run
As to how many times you will have to repeat this process. 
You can either bake the cast-iron pan that you just finished scrubbing  
with the soap-free steel wool pad inside your self-cleaning oven for a couple hours
However, sometimes if you have to repeat the process you end-up 
with lots of smoke inside you home.
So I believe the best way to do the second part of your
Rusted Cast-Iron cookware, is not in your oven but outside.
Why? for a couple of reasons; depending on how rusty your cast-iron pot is;
you might have to repeat this process several times. 
And because of the process it could fill you home full of smoke, 
having to do it several times. 
With that all being said after the hand and muscle power 
of removing a much as you can with the steel wool then you need to 
bake it probably several times by heating the piece on a grill, over
a wood fire for a couple hours and repeat several times.
After you have completely cleaned the pot you will need to re-season it for use.
how you do this is; apply cooking oil of your choice 
all over it. Then Preheat your oven to 350 degree's. Before you start 
the baking process you need to line you oven floor and walls with 
alumni foil so that it doesn't have all the oil mess all over your oven.
After your oven is prepared, put the pan upside down for an hour. 
After the hour, turn off the oven and let it cool naturally.
They say, the more you cook with your newly seasoned cast-iron cookware,
the more effective they will be with your cooking with each use.

You will need to re-oil the pan after each use of cooking.
Well I hope that these hints will help some of you,
With your cast-iron cookware in the upcoming holidays.
I love you all my dear Friends & Followers hugs YOUR WENDY...
