    Cast iron has been one of the best sources of dietary iron from the beginning of human existence. Love them...

    Yeah, I don't do the newer cast. The older the better. Here's an old gate marked skillet that was just finished.

    The second pic is right after I found it.

    I use lard also. I heat up on the stove top then wipe down with lard. Put in the oven at 350 for 15 minutes, take it out and wipe it down then back in for 2 hours.
