Ode to the Iron Skillet

In terms of cooking, an iron skillet can be a kitchen staple. Not only does it cook food beautifully and fill your food with flavour but it can help you increase your body's iron absorption. If you've got an iron deficiency, this health article about overcoming iron deficiencies gives a lot of helpful tips.

Iron Skillet Tips:

-Season your pan a few times a year, particularly if food is beginning to stick.

-Clean it immediately after use with water and cloths. Avoid soap if possible. If you must use soap, re-season your pan before your next use.

Iron Skillet Recipes:

My two favourite foods to cook in an iron skillet are:

Pan-Fried Potatoes

-Start with good oil such as olive or coconut oil and a dollop of butter. When the pan is good and hot put in chopped potato wedges and add plenty of seasoning salt, salt & pepper, Mrs. Dash and some diced onion. Cook on med-high until done.
