Re: Greetings from the Twin Cities!

Hi, Aaron,

I'm from your neck of the woods (east Metro). Not very active here anymore but I do check in occasionally, and saw your post.

We have a number of good flea markets around in the...

Re: Observation: seasoning of cast iron skillet

I don't understand the "etch it" part. Haven't heard of that before, have never done that. Don't use vinegar at all unless I need to remove rust without an e-tank. Just a good water rinse during...

Re: Corroding Anode

That is exactly what I needed to know! Thanks, Jack. I'm surprised because I'd think that ferrous wire would add too much resistance. Someone else suggested clothes hanger wire... I guess that's...

Re: Corroding Anode

Yes, that is the problem, but I don't (or, didn't) know how to attach to the anode without submerging the clip. The SS plate that I was using didn't touch bottom, so I just clipped to it and let it...

Corroding Anode

How do you attach your charger's positive terminal to the anode in your t-tank? The copper clip on mine has almost entirely eroded away. Yes, it has been below the surface of the washing soda...

Re: #11 Wapak Indian

I think that a #11 is much more scarce. I paid $80 for my #8, and that is a pretty common size (of course, maybe I overpaid, but not from what I've seen)

#11 Wapak Indian

I was at the St. Paul (MN) State Fairgrounds flea market last weekend, and a guy there had a #11 Wapak Indianhead skillet in very good condition. The Indian was a bit worn, but not at all bad. I...

Re: Healthier alternative to Crisco?

The oil, when properly seasoned, is polymerized and essentially inert. You aren't cooking with it... you are cooking on it. (not to mention that the whole idea of fats being bad for your health is...

Re: Bellflower handle iron

Mine has no size on the underside, nor does it have a smoke ring. Just the gatemark. It is also somewhat rounded on the underside... apparently that was deliberate according to Steve Stephens.

Re: ISO French onion soup recipe

I have made a multi-onion soup that sounds almost exactly like DougD's and it was delicious. You want to go very low and slow on your onions. That's what brings out the sweetness. I also agree...

Re: Chip of the old block

What's the bit about salt and peppering the pan? Never heard of that, and can't see what difference it might make.

Re: Beware of YouTube Chefs

To me, salt is the electricity that makes the circuit work. You don't want so much that you blow a fuse, but salt does conduct flavors... it is not just a flavor in itself.
