Cast iron skillet
For some unknown reason I decided to buy this second-hand cast iron skillet at the Kilkivan Antiques & Collectables store on the way home from Gayndah. I really like the look of it but I've never cooked with one. My auntie is a real kitchen expert so I thought I could ask her for advice but she just sneered and said she hates cooking with cast iron cookware. Back to square 1. From my very limited understanding of what I've googled I think I need to give it a good scrub and then re-season it. It's got a nice smooth coat on it now, but I'm worried about a little spot in the middle of the pan that seems to be slightly rusted. What say you? Shall I relegate this to a prop or give it a good clean and a couple of seasonings and go for it?
