For centuries, cast iron cookware was the most common type of cookware in the world. Long before ovens were invented, heavy 3-legged cast iron cauldrons, utensils, kettles, and all shapes of pots hung over fires inside at hearths or outside over campfires. As other less expensive and lighter forms of cookware became more widely available, cast iron pots and pans dropped in popularity. Today they are making a comeback and retaking their rightful place in kitchens around the globe. Cast iron is renowned for its ability to retain heat and for its durability. When properly cared for, cast iron cookware can be the kitchen workhorse for generations, turning out mouthwatering steaks, sizzling fajitas, beautifully browned cornbread and so much more. But cooking with cast iron is a little different than cooking with stainless steel or aluminum pots and pans. In this book, we have chosen some of our favourite meals to cook in cast iron skillets and Dutch ovens. We have also provided detailed information on how to properly care for your cast iron cookware. This collection of soon-to-be favourite recipes, with helpful tips scattered throughout, will surely become your go-to resource for all things cast iron.
