How to Season your New or Used Cast Iron Cookware

Cast iron has a porous surface. The seasoning process serves to fill and smooth the surface of the pan. It's true that the more you use and season a cast-iron, the more non-stick the surface becomes. Here is how you season a new or used cast-iron utensil:

1. If the pan is new, be sure any adhesive label is completely removed.

2. Wash, rinse and dry the utensil.

3. Grease the inside surface with Crisco or other solid shortening. A medium-light coating, as you would grease a cake pan, is sufficient.

4. Heat the oven to 350

When cooking in a cast iron pot, what can cause your food to turn black?

My niece just called and asked if I had ever had my food turn black when I was cooking in my cast iron cookware. She has seasoned it like she is supposed to but her food is still turning black. Anyone ever had a problem with this?
Yeah it is really cast iron. I told her that she may not her gotten it seasoned adequately..I've also heard that if you boil water in it that can happen.

Well either the fire is up to high or black specks are coming off. Ive done both.
