Cast iron for candy making?
I have an old cast iron pot I haven't used yet (see my previous post attached below if you're curious as to its origin) but it's getting to candy-making time and this looks like it'll be perfect as well as being the only thing I own that works on my current cooktop that is a good size.
It has no seasoning. I soaked it in a bag with oven cleaner for a while and then scrubbed it and oiled it and put it away.
So, for candy, do I need to have it seasoned or should I season it afterwards? I really don't want any seasoning errors to seep into Halloween candy, flavors OR chunks. I guess candy is just like anything else, or is it?
Any recommendations? (Besides cook the cheap stuff first.)
