Three Letters Re: A Science Based Technique for Seasoning Cast Iron

Dear HJL,

Three quick comments about your cast iron seasoning techniques:

1. I don’t think you are abusing your pans.

2. I would suggest not using Canola Oil, since it is the result of genetic modification and “big food” marketing (Canada Oil Low Acid or “CanOLA“.

3. To re-season my cast iron, I generally just cook up a big batch of bacon.

Thanks – Mike
