Restored cast iron pie irons.

Today I spent several hours restoring some rusted up pie irons. It took me an hour for each one. However I am quite proud of how the came out. I should have taken pictures of the job for everyone to see. They were rusted pretty bad.

I went to hardware store and picked up a wire brush attachment that would work in my drill. I actually started out trying to use a hand powered wire brush and that would have taken years. Once I got them all shined up with wire brush I used hot water and steel wool to get remain rust off in the sink. I then quickly dried them off. With paper towels I lathered them up with lard. I then baked them in the oven on 250 for 2 hrs. The look brand spanking new now. Can't wait for camping to begin on Monday. We will be camping out all week, should be a good time.

That's the beauty of cast iron - it's never so far gone that it can't be restored! I use a CI skillet everyday that is at least 60 years old and it might as well be new.
Saludos, Karen
