Enjoy easy camping food made with a cast-iron skillet.
Whip out the Skillet the Next Time You’re Out Camping
A skillet tis a thick frying pan made from iron. They can rust easily however if not properly taken care of. Let’s take a look a few points to help you keep your skillet in the game for the long run.
Once you buy it, season it!
A skillet that you’ve just purchased is likely to be lined with a wax or oil to keep it from rusting. To get rid of that harmful oil is called seasoning the pan. This is taking household detergent and firmly washing the pan before drying. Once dry, switch to cooking oil. Without oil, you can speed up the rusting process or cause burns, so don’t forget! Also, while few, there are some skillets that do not require seasoning. Be sure to know your cooking materials.
After Use, Avoid Washing with Dish Detergent.
After you’ve enjoyed the delicious food you’ve prepared with your newly bought skillet, wait for it cool completely before cleaning. Wipe away any dirt with kitchen paper and a scrubbing brush along with some water. If you were to use detergent here this will inevitably cause rust. After cleaning with water, put the skillet to some heat to dry it. After it is completely dry, coat it again with a bit of oil.
Newspaper for Long-time Storage
If you’re planning to use the skillet again shortly after, simply putting it away is enough before it’s next use. If you have no plans to use the skillet again for a while, wrap it in newspaper and store in a dry place.
