Cast Iron Skillet Cobbler

- April 20, 2017 -

As a west coast baby I was never exposed to the glory of cooking in the traditionally southern cast iron tradition. Cast iron has wonderful benefits ranging from providing dietary iron to providing a depth of flavor in your favorite recipes. Cast iron is also a great investment because it can last forever and is virtually indestructible if cared for correctly. Some people shy away from cast iron because they are intimidated by a pan with “rules”. The rules of care for these old school pans are simple, I promise. I purchased my cast iron skillets at marshals, a great spot for low priced kitchen goods but amazon is another great place to get one! The first thing you need to do with your cast iron once you get it home is season it. Start by scrubbing the base layer off of the pan with steel wool, all natural soap, and hot water. Next towel dry your cast iron and place it on a stove top until it is bone dry to prevent rust. Then pour a drop of oil onto your cast iron and spread it around with a cloth, once coated, wipe off excess oil. I choose to use melted coconut oil to grease my cast iron because coconut oil has a higher smoke point than many other oils aka it doesn’t burn and create carcinogens when heating. The coconut oil can leave a white film but it doesn’t bother me or your skillet one bit. Once your cast iron is oiled, bake it upside down for an hour at your ovens highest temp (probably 500 degrees) . Now that your skillet is seasoned feel free to make this yummy cast iron skillet cobbler or any other baked or sautéed dish. After dirtying your cast iron skillet there are a few do’s and dont’s in the cleaning department. Do wash it right away, you don’t want to leave water in your skillet. Don’t use soap, use salt, hot water, and a scrub brush or the back side of a sponge to wash your skillet. Do dry well after washing, using the stovetop drying method listed above. Do re oil your skillet before you store it. Maybe sing to your skillet too, I’m sure your food will taste extra delicious if you follow my last suggestion.
