Washing Cast Iron...

I do know that there are times that there's no substituting soap and water but I've found that I can avoid it often by 'washing' my cast iron with fat! I simply dip a paper towel in the fat and wipe away everything in the pan- scrambled eggs come right out! ;)

I think I've told you a little before about rendering beef fat, well, that's what I use. You could use lard or other fats of your choice but I love my beef fat- it's free and it keeps my pans good and conditioned!
