Seasoning a Cast Iron Skillet is a new skill for me. I guess you can call me a "Teflon" kinda girl. While I was growing up, my mom had a cast iron skillet and used it for just about everything! I received a cast iron skillet for Christmas and I had no idea about the care and "seasoning" that goes along with owning a cast iron skillet.
Here are 5 easy steps to bring back the luster and protect the skillet from rusting:
1. Scrub skillet will in hot soapy water.
2. Dry thoroughly.
3. Spread a thin layer of melted shortening or vegetable oil over the skillet.
4. Place it upside down on a middle oven rack at 375 degrees. (Place foil on a lower rack to catch drips.)
5. Bake 1 hour; let cool in the oven.
There you go! Easy enough to do.
