Well, it was time to find a subject and as I was cooking eggs in the origanal non-stick Pan. Cast iron, I went huh, while its not a food, and the big ones weight a good amount, to be without cast iron would, well it would just be wrong somehow.. What else can you cook anything in, regardless if you are cooking over a open fire, on coals, on a wood stove or in your gas or electic stove, will last you a lifetime of wear and tear, has been hauled all across our great land tied to backpacks, dog packs, horse packs or by wagon.
When I was a young’n an my family was into Rendezvous (Black Powder Gun Clubs), one of the ladies events was the cast iron frying pan throwing contest, I don’t know if this was real or a yarn that I got told as child, but the ladies swore that the the frontier ladies used those frying pans as weapons when needed, All I know is that I spent a fair amount of time (or at least it seemed that way as child 🙂 learning how to hit targets with it LOL They said that you could take guy out in the knees with one of those suckers, and now as a adult having taken a few self-defence class’s , I gotta agree, a cast iron to the knee would really slow a guy down*
*Please note I am not recommending anyone try this at home

I have 9 different sizes of Cast Iron cooking pans, ranging from little tiny ones, to the typical size to bean pots to meat cook ribs to pancake flat griddle. What about you? Do you use Cast Iron in your cooking? Are you a wipe out owner or a scrub with soap and reseason owner? Have you used your Cast Iron over the coals to cook outside? What is “the one thing” that you have to cook in a Cast Iron pan only? For me its baked beans.
