*If you liked my post “How to deep clean your slow cooker the healthy way“, you’re going to LOVE this one too.*A couple of years ago I started cooking with cast iron. Though, I kind of gave up for a while because it’s hard to clean and you really shouldn’t soak it (which is hard for me because I frequently am too tired to do one more load of dishes after cooking from scratch all day and so the dinner dishes become my morning chore) so I kinda felt helpless over what to do.
Even though I consider cooking in iron one of the more healthy ways to cook (no bpa like in non-stick cookware, and no copper toxicity that can happen when using copper), I figure that iron is an essential nutrient that we need so it suits me just fine cooking with it… but there just had to be a way to make it a little easier to clean. As luck would have it, I was watching someone that has cooked with cast iron for a very long time and they showed me a little cleaning trick that has been passed down from one cook to the next throughout the years. I still consider myself a newbie to cast iron, so I just had to share in case any of you other newbie’s out there need this tip too.
I hope I explained it well enough for you all to understand…it’s pretty simple and makes cleaning cast iron a breeze…instead of a majorly time-consuming chore. If you loved this tip, make sure to share this post with your friends. Thanks~Sarah
