Hmmmm....strange things done in the midnight sun.

My Brother and his children came over for a visit and a swim, we spent the afternoon doddling around, yapping, watching the kids.

My dear little bro, whodda thunk that he could teach his big sis something about cooking?  Whodda thunk.  He told me that he learned something cool.  He taught me how to properly season my old cast iron frying pans, something that he has learned recently.  Of course, wouldn't he want to show off to his big sis his newly acquired knowledge. 

We went to my kitchen, got my old yucky cast iron frying pans out, cleaned them up really nicely (I never use them, they stick too much for my liking).  I use teflon (but never to be used in my kitchen again after my experience yesterday).  He coated these frying pans thickly with good cooking oil and put them into the oven to cook at 350 degrees for two hours.

Evidently, this continual cooking of the pans allows the oil to permeate the iron, when the pan cools, the oils are sealed within and they are seasoned.

Well, bust ma britches.  If he didn't cook the most beautiful eggs (with a little butter as a slippery agent beneath them in the pan).  They did not stick, not one little bit.  I would almost say that they floated on the pan, smiling.

So, yes, of course, everyone at the pool was going to have a taste of these beautiful eggs (and the fact that they were taken from the nest box only that morning, and were very fresh) made for an interesting event.  Hands down.  These were the most delicious eggs that we had all tasted.  Perhaps a little bit of suggestion also made them taste even better than the teflon cooked eggs.

The two eggs were split among six people, only that teeny tiny taste was on the tip of each tongue.

That finished, I was a little lazy, such a big meal certainly makes one a little sleepy  rolleyes cool cheesy.  I put the plate on top of a post that sits in our gargoyle garden, one that holds one of the lights that shines at night.  My Brother told me that was probably not a good idea, as perhaps a dog or kid may bump the post and knock it down to the earth and bricks below.  I went to reach for the plate, as I agreed, it was a pretty good idea to get off my lazy butt and take it to the house.  Well, holy smokin' cadoodalhoppers, if that plate, just as I reached for it, decided that it was going to tip and fall off.

Straight down, turned sideways and went straight into the earth, unbroken, along with the fork.  Well, bust ma britches.  Have that wonderful day, to love and live, share with good health.  Cindi

Cindi, I love your gargoyles! 

I need to reseason my cast iron skillet, my son or husband washed it in the sink with lots of vigor, it's lost its seasoning Sad  They didn't know, poor guys.  I'll use your brother's tip, which I've heard before, and redo it - it was nicely seasoned.  I love cooking those fresh eggs on it.

If you find some really old cast iron cook ware and want to use it but don't know how to clean it up or the soap and water will not bring it clean. Built a small camp fire and toss them in, let them cok for a couple of hours and then just let the fire go out on its own, pull them out the next day, they will be clean as new. Do not pull it out while hot, it could cool too fast and crack.  Wash with soap and water, stick in preheated oven to dry, and then season with cooking oil or lard, all over the whole thing to keep it from rusting.

If you do wash them be sure to coat with oil again. I like to stick them back into the oven while it is still warm, this will dry them off and then dry the oil, ready for next time.

steel wool and brillos will make them rust quick.

I am glad that you got your pans back to working order.
Around 20 years ago my grandmother gave me her favorite cast iron frying pan, this has got to be many many years old now and she taught me how to clean it with oil after each use and to re seaon it when needed.
Its a great pan, I love to cook with it because it reminds me of her and I miss her alot.

After each use of my cast iron pots and skillet, I clean them, then warm and add a little vegetable lard, let them cool, then wipe down with a paper towel and place in the oven to sleep.

Cindi, I believe that gargoyle made the plate fall, look at the perplexed look on his face that it didn't break!
