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)

I use seasonings all the time, but I use spices that are single ingredient items. Many of the "seasonings" you buy at a store might have tons of stuff in them that aren't spices or food items. Buy a wide variety of spices and then use them... (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)

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)

Wow, I cant believe you asked that question on PaleoHacks! The Paleo police will be at your house before sun down to revoke your Paleo licence and take away all of your Paleo privileges. Next time you try to buy coconut oil at Whole Foods, it... (more)

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)

I actually just love the potatoes plain with large flaky sea salt. Sometimes maybe a little lemon or orange zest over the top. And always duck fat or maybe just a teeny bit of coconut oil on the pan so they don't stick. Here are a few other... (more)

The type of oil used to season is irrelevant. A season is made up mostly of burnt oil turned to carbon, and there's no paleo/non-paleo carbon. The oil burns off, leaving carbon in the uneven parts of the surface making it smooth. Adding to the... (more)

I'm looking for tips on how to season and maintain a cast-iron skillet, Paleo-style. If you Google it, you will invariably find tips to use Crisco or vegetable oil (plus people arguing back and forth about why one is better than the other). Only... (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)

How do you get rust out of cast iron skillet

greymouser 0 · February 04, 2013 at 7:01 PM

First, forget about the pan's seasoning for a moment. Second thing is the get a wire or brillo-type scrubber and scrub the rust off. You can use vinegar to make this more effective. There's really no secret to it: scrub, vinegar, scrub. Once all... (more)
