Cool Second Hand Shop Score

Found this little one quart, cast iron pot and lid at a second hand shop today. Four bucks! Scrubbing it up now and getting ready to season it in the oven.

Awesome Awesome Awesome!

Are you going to season it inside and outside, or just the inside? I do both but I'm not sure I'm supposed to.

Now I wish I'd have gone to a rummage sale or two this week-end instead of working around the house.

Rock, that looks kind of silvery for CI. Does it have a coating on it?

Blissfull, I coated the whole thing, lid and all, inside and out. Put it on the upper rack at 450 for an hour. I may do it again before I use it.

Andy. I agree. It was a bit grey with irregular discolourations on it. I don't think it was ever used much and hadn't been used for a long time. Here it is after the first seasoning session..It looks like CI now, I think.
