Cleaning rust off cast iron skillet, and what to cook in it?
Hi all, I just bought an old Wagner Ware #10 cast iron skillet from a consignment shop. It looks fairly smooth, but the surface is really dull and it definitely has some surface rust on it. Any tips on the best way to get that rust off, then season it? Its my first cast iron piece, so I really have no idea how to get it in good shape again.
Also, what do y'all cook in a cast iron skillet? I've heard cornbread works great, but I have no idea what else to cook. It's about 12" across, and almost 3" deep, with a big handle and 2 pour spouts. I'm excited to use it!
