Cast irons at a local flea market. Manong soaks them in 1 part water, 1 part vinegar, and scrubs them with detergent and baking soda. Impressed that the rust flakes off, he says, "See? I know chemistry." In third year high school, he represented the school in a chemistry quiz contest. Not sure if he won!
There's a tiny cast iron egg pan someone left behind here at home. I still can't get it seasoned. Every time I wash it, it's back to zero. Not that I use it a lot and I use the barest amount of oil when I cook with it. Just swipe a drop around with my fingers.ReplyDelete
