My husband was cooking Northern Beans to make "Ham & Beans" on the Stove. He forgot about it and completely burned the beans!
He soaked the pan in soapy water (it's a cast iron DO) until I got home. I rinsed it out and used a "bristle brush" to clean out the "food particles", re-seasoned it with oil, put it in the oven for 1 hour.
The following day he tried again to cook the "Northern Beans" but soon after starting to cook, the "smell" of the previous day's mishap was terrible! Also giving the food a "burnt" taste and smell.
HELP!!Is it ruined?????
