    Perfect timing — my cast iron skillet just burned a hole in the bottom! My favorite cooking memory using cast iron is learning how to make cornbread with my mom — one of my first cooking tasks once I mastered the recipe

    My best memory of cast iron cooking was from my childhood, I never got to see my grandmother much (she lived out of state) probably less than 10 times in my life before she passed but whenever I would get to visit she always made me my favorite thing, fried apples in her cast iron skillet that she got from her mother, I never will forget that smell and the great taste of “Grandma’s Famous Fried Apples” as she called them. Well She is gone now but that cast iron skillet is in my fathers kitchen still cooking great things to eat today and her recipe is stored in my heart, some day that skillet will be mine and I’ll be cooking “Grandma’s Famous Fried Apples” in it again but until then it sure would be nice to get some practice in a new lodge skillet…

    I love the memories of baking with my mom when I was very young. She was so patient letting me measure and stir with little hands that were none too accurate. We baked cookies, cakes, and bread. I was never quite so patient with my children but I think they still enjoyed cooking with me!

    My favorite cooking memory is making homemade bread at my grandmother’s house when I visited during the summer. She would make sure that I did all the steps and always talked me through the directions. It was a special time and a memory I will always cherish!

    Looking at this beautiful cast iron pot and pans takes me back many years. I can close my eyes and remember my mother cutting up carrots adding them to the beef stew cooking in a cast iron pot, I can hear the fireplace popping and crackling in the background as i smile thinking about the cornbread going in the oven being cooked in the cast iron skillet. Being so excited for it to be done and rushing to get the butter melted on it evenly before it cooled. Hoping that there would be enough for seconds. I feel a slight breeze from the strong cold wind outside and thinking there is no where else Id rather be right now. My hunger grew stronger and stronger as i watched the stew starting to bubble. I can almost smell it still to this day! Oh what i would give to have some cast iron pots and pans so my children will have the same sweet memories of cooking with cast iron

    My favorite cooking memory is making Christmas cookies with my mom, aunts, cousins and little sisters as a child. These are the times that you never forget and carry on to your children. Traditions are what life is all about.

    Learning to make skillet cornbread from my mother. She is an excellent cook, but her education in my grandmother’s kitchen gave her the basics in which to become the best cook in town. We were so spoiled to have that growing up. A note on the cornbread: My dad (and myself) like it a little on the dark side and nothing does that like cast iron! And while I love using bacon fat – duck fat is the most amazing splurge to make a great cornbread : )

    My favorite memory was trying to learn how to make my mom’s pancakes on a cast iron griddle. The first one stuck to the pan and burned so I added a little more butter the for the next one. Apparently too much because butter splattered on my arm when I poured the batter in. She never measured anything and I just never got them quite right so I always had her make them. She made the best pancakes and boy do I miss them!! It’s the one thing I regret not learning how to make from her.

    I have always had a great time cooking with my Dad in the kitchen. He has a natural talent for cooking, and anything he touches turns out great! I would love to win these so he can teach me his secrets to cast iron cooking!

    My favorite memory is with cooking with dad. Back in the 70’s he was on strike and the only food we had to eat was what he was allowed to hunt for and bread and a few staples from the store. He would cook, rabbit, dove, pheasant, squirrel, all in spaghetti sauce and onions, baked in the oven. It’s been a long time since I have eaten wild game but the memories are still fresh in my mind.

    My favorite memory is of my late Daddy cooking with his cast iron cookware. He made the best cornbread, he came up with his own recipe and called it Tennessee Corn Sticks, he baked it in his cast iron corn stick pans. He made the best homemade biscuits also, he would put the dough in his cast iron skillet and bake it
    in a whole cake. In the South we call it “Hoe Cake”, it was delicious!

    My favorite memory is my Mama cooking a mess of fresh trout that my Daddy caught. He would walk 10 miles into the head waters of the river. We lived in the Blue Ridge Mountains of N.C. Mama put the frying pan on the grill and cooked them outside. It seemed like the pan was as large as the grill.

    My Dad would take over the kitchen on Saturday and make one of his mom’s dishes. Our favorite was potato pancakes. All the kids would take turns with the hand grinder and we would go through ten pounds of potatoes.

    Cooking on my Great Grandmother’s wood burning stove is one of my favorite memories. During the summers of 1960’s through 70’s, all the family and extended family would gather at g-grandma’s house for a reunion since many of us where being scattered across the US because of jobs or school. As expected, the women gathered in the kitchen and planned the meals. I was amazed on how much food we made for everyone on that stove and it was the beginning for me on learning how to cook. Fried potatoes, ham, and eggs. And the biscuits, oh my! Lots of fun summer memories on the farm and thankful for the chance to learn how to live a simple life while having everything you need with your family together.

    My most favorite cooking memories were with my wonderful grandmother Rose. She was Italian and the best cook I ever met.

    I have my grandmothers cast iron black dutch oven and make bread in it. It comes out so nice and crispy on the outside and just lovely inside. I also have my grandmothers cast iron skillets that she used to make fried chicken! Man could she cook!When my dad was little they used to have chickens (depression era) and my dad’s grandmother lived with them. Well one day he watched his grandmother go out back and wring a chickens neck for Sunday dinner. Well I guess he thought it was the thing to do so he went out and wrung a couple of chickens necks before he got caught. Needless to say he got a beating for that and whenever he told that story he was still upset that his grandma beat him for it. He was just a little boy trying to help. 🙂

    When I was about 13 years old my Grandma my Dads mom had me cut the head off a chicken clean and cook it and the rest of the food for the meal . It is one of the things I will always remember about going to her house she always would teach you something when you were there. What good memorys thay were!

    Growing up we had several cast iron pans in our kitchen …one was used only for bacon and sausage and one was used only to fry potatoes! The pans looked the same except the “potato” pan had a small gouge in the end of the handle so we knew which pan was which!

    The most prized possession I have in my kitchen is my cast iron skillet that my mother handed down to me before she passed away, as her mother had, many years before, I am the baby in our family and my sister is the oldest and we are 20 years apart. She refers to herself as the “head” and refers to me as the “tail.” Last summer she, Geral, who is 81, came to visit and we pulled out the skillet and she made fried sweet potatoes, like our mother had made countless times in it before. They tasted exactly the same, but for the love Mom added to hers. I think love was the spice she added that we somehow just can’t get right. You can’t keep that special touch of a seasoned cook after she is gone, but you can keep the vessel used in pristine condition if it’s a cast iron skillet. I love this family heirloon and will pass it down in my family so it can be passed down for years to come.

    My favorite family cooking memory was when we had a Honduran barbecue for my birthday my dad grilled the skirt steak on a charcoal grill, my mom and I made Chismol (Honduran salsa that goes on the meat) and we feasted with all our friends. So much fun.

    I was about 15 or 16 and my Daddy decided to teach me to make scrambled eggs… Neither one of us knew why, but I just couldn’t do it.. He watched me do everything exactly like he did, and they still were a mess.. Mom was not happy when she saw we had used a dozen eggs in the process…LOL Today tho, I make great scrambled eggs!
