X’s Tip of the Day

For those of you with cast iron cook ware, and are unable to get that really nice seasoned look with Crisco or olive oil, use flaxseed oil to season your cast iron.

I got my oil from Ebay for about 14 bucks.

I had to scrub my Dutch oven down and use some oven cleaner to clean the sides and bottom. It didn’t get it all, but it was the best I could do.

I used the flaxseed oil and it was a noticeable difference in the color and texture of the seasoned surface.
