    I have been saving jars to use for Christmas goodies, but I have hesitated to use them because I could never get the smell out. You know, like pickles, etc. Anyway, I came across this article, which talked about something I had never heard before-coating the lids. I knew the smell was from...
  5. Cast Iron cooking
    I'll just start with a quick intro, basically I've looked everywhere for good ways to strip the seasoning off cast iron, and failed. Why? I'm trying to help with a project (can't disclose too many details) but it's for a restaurant, and we've designed a cast iron grill. Everything about this...
