I admit that I haven’t used it very much because it’s an odd size. It’s not small but it’s not big enough to make soups in either. I was unsure what to do with it but I am making a promise to myself to use it more.
I do love it!
Sunday night I realized that this pot would be prefect for cooking up a huge batch of collards and I was right. This cast iron dutch oven was the perfect size!
I’m going to try and find more ways to start using this pot. My first thought is perhaps making some baked beans. Anyone have any great baked beans recipe? I would like to make the baked beans from scratch as this is something I’ve never done before.
I’ve got a great cast iron skillet as well that I’ve made cornbread in.
Cast iron can be so useful! Plus you can add iron to your diet just by cooking with cast iron. Yup, it’s true! Foods cooked in cast iron will absorb the iron and then you take in that iron when you eat the food. So if you’re looking to add a little more iron in your diet without having to take supplements, give cast iron cooking a try!
Have you cooked with cast iron before?
