I Get to Talk About Cast Iron on the Eater Channel
The YouTube video interview I did on cast iron has just been released. What a super day I had discussing one of my favorite kitchen tools – everything cast iron! I’ve been collecting cast iron cookware since way back in the day. I still use the 9-inch corn bread skillet my stepdad gave me in 1952. I used my cast iron on the farm on my wood cook stove. I use my pans in my electric oven and on my gas stovetop today; actually practically everyday. In between I’ve used the big 5 gallon kettle to make chicken and potatoes on open fires at fairs and festivals over the years.
In January the fantastic crew from the YouTube channel Eater came to my house to talk cast iron history and cookery with me. It’s gratifying to work with such professional folks; and of course, I got a real charge out of working in front of the cameras and lights. I got to show off many pieces from my cast iron collection which is always fun. Here is the link to the The History of Cast Iron . Please enjoy it and like and subscribe to the Eater channel and to my Indigo House History YouTube channel. Thank you!
