Tip of the week – cleaning cast iron pans

I haven’t been too successful in properly seasoning my cast iron frying pan, but I’m a pro at cleaning up the screw ups!

Never ever clean a cast iron frying pan with water or soap.  So, what do you do if you have a pan with crusty crap stuck on it?  A mixture of olive oil, and kosher salt rubbed in to pan usually removes any baked on junk.

So, there you go!
