I consider myself mostly a crap cook, I never experiment as I usually balls things up and that's half why Paleo has worked so well for me purely because being so healthy is so simple...(Generally..) I'm looking to modify the tastes of... (more)

Pick flavors you like. Try spices until you figure out which you like. Thyme, oregano, and cilantro are my go-to herbs. Paprika, cumin, black pepper are my go-to spices. Other go-to flavorants: garlic, ginger, fish sauce, tamarind,... (more)

Can I put seasoning on my meats, chicken, and fish? Like complete seasoning and adobo seasoning?

Hello! If trans-fat consumpution is problematic, is trans-fat formation while seasoning a cast-iron pan problematic? This site claims that trans-fats are integral to a good seasoning surface. It recommends flaxseed oil as a seasoning oil. The... (more)

PUFAs are what you need for seasoning. They're oxidizable and polymerizable. Saturated fats are actually the worst in terms of seasoning ability because they lack ability to oxidize. Flaxseed is a great oil to use for it, I seasoned my cast iron... (more)

I may try cast iron again thanks to this thread. I have tried several times but never was able to get even a bit of "non-stick" properties into a cast iron pan. I learned enough from that link to know I probably was not "seasoning" properly. (more)

In order to season the carbon fiber wok that I just purchased, the factory recommends cooking Canola, Peanut, or Vegetable oil until it begins to smoke, rubbing it in with a paper towel as this occurs, and then letting it cool. My question is... (more)

I don't think it would be a problem. I know a lot of "pre-seasoned" are actually using linseed oil. I wouldn't eat linseed oil, so I'd rather not season my pan with it. But it likely means that there are very trace amounts which get into your... (more)

I know my favorite all-purpose seasoning I use to cook is not Paleo, but check out the nutrition facts... Is it okay to use? Or will it ruin my paleo-ness? (It has ZERO carbs! and mostly sodium) (more)

Honestly, who cares? It is just spices. Nothing large enough to be harmful anyways... Don't worry about being Paleo, just worry about being healthy and feeling good.

I have some yams chopped and soaked over night in water, ready to make yam fries. I typically season with a little olive oil, salt and pepper. I'm curious if anyone has tried an other seasonings on their fries that have come off as sensational?... (more)

Not really on topic but, my parents have several pieces of cast iron that belonged to their parents - I suspect my brother and I will have to throw down for who gets those eventually. I do agree with others though, I wouldn't worry too much about... (more)

I think you are over-thinking it. I also think you are being a bit anxious. A skillet takes a while to get "good 'n seasoned", be patient. Also, I'd totally drop the scouring, sanding, salt, etc. Each of these is stripping the seasoning. All of... (more)
