Default Hello from East Texas

I've been using a few modern-ish pieces of cast iron for over 20 years, but only started collecting older pieces a few years ago. It started when I found a recipe for "ginger gems" that called for using a French roll gem pan and I had to find out what the heck that was. And then I had to buy one so I could make the ginger gems. At which point I found out how much fun it is to strip and re-season cast iron. So, now I have cabinets, drawers and one oven filled with various cast iron pieces. Most of them are Wagner, which must have been what was most popular in this area, but I do have one large logo Griswold #8 that is one of my daily use pans. When someone tells me that cast iron is "too heavy", I pull that one out and introduce them to old iron.

I've been using this site for a long time for identification purposes, so I thought it was high time I registered.

Welcome Kari!

What part of "East Texas" are you from? I'm between Sulphur Springs/Mount Pleasant and Tyler/Longview myself!
