Ice for Cocktails

Good, fresh ice made with boiled, filtered water will make a noticeable difference in the taste of your cocktails. As Eric Felten advises, 'Use ice untainted by municipal chlorine and free from memories of trout caught last summer.'

i have scrubbed til i couldn't scrub anymore....toweled until very, very little black came off on the towel. washed, dried. when i oiled it it seems like a LOT of black came off on the papertowel. i continued to oil and it is currently in a hot oven for 1 hour...

does this seem right?

Hi njm. Yes it does. Now that you' ve seasoned it though, no more soap. I think the carbon still slightly comes off of ours years later. We clean with salt. Eventually with seasoning, (frying more) the carbon will become more shiney like and come off less.

And as Michael Symon says nothing can live in salt so it will kill any bacteria.

Part of the reason I tossed my cast iron pans in the trash. They are VERY hard to clean and whatever it is that builds up through use makes them unappealing to use. The newer model non-stick cookware are MUCH easier to work with and you can actually clean them using soap/water.

My husband love his cast iron frying pan. Had it for so many years I can't remember when it was bought.

Food residue (regardless of what you call it) it NOT something I want to keep tasting/seeing in future meals....LOL. Not sure how it makes them any healthier but to each their own. The fact that many cast iron pans suggest you don't wash them in soap/water since it requires reseasoing or causes it to rust is just gross to me.
