Cooking in cast iron

    The superior heat retention qualities of cast iron make these dutch ovens perfect for slow simmering delicious soups and stews. They’re also perfect for deep frying or for baking biscuits in an outdoor fire pit.

    my personal meohtd..I buy my cast iron from thrift stores or garage sales. I will NOT wash them, I purchase bulk bacon ends and fry them up. I toss all the bacon to my husky, and dont keep the initial lard as its polluted. Scrape any shazz away with a metal or wooden spoon, wipe out with paper towels, set aside for lighting fires in the woodstove, fry another batch up do the same, but eat the bacon and jar the grease! Wipe extra oil again, put away.
