Joan, it is not necessary to grind down the cast iron skillet frying surface, but in new skillets it does help make them easier to cook non-stick.   The old ones were smooth, and it's not an issue.  The new ones have a pebbled surface that helps the factory pre-seasoning process but is not as nice as a smooth surface.  Grinding them down is really something that a semi-fanatic cook would do, like me.  I bought a grinding wheel for my drill, now need to do it.  The best choice is to use a vintage skillet.

Mike, I don't know about taking a teaspoon of blackstrap molasses for health, but I do use it in whole wheat bread.  Plus, dates and walnuts.  Very good for peanut butter sandwiches, or just toasted with some butter.

As I ate my bison burger last night, I was wondering how well that market is doing. I know I can't find bison meat at any major supermarkets and have to rely on farmers markets to buy it. I know I can order it via the internet, but hesitate to do it, fearing thawing in transit. I don't eat much meat anyway, so it's no big deal. Oh yes, I cooked the bison burger in my cast iron skillet.

Is it really necessary to grind down cast iron skillets to make them non-stick? I would think it would be easier to season cast iron than grind it.

Take a teaspoon of genuine blackstrap molasses in the morning every day. Take a double shot of Brag's Apple Cider vinegar mixed with juice or something every night at bedtime. This is for digestive and general health.

Randy, I hope you are feeling better now.

Nothing about me is what it used to be.

Sorry to hear about your stomach not acting it's age Randall.

I don't think I'm as bad as you, but my digestive system has never been working properly.  For one thing, if I eat too much of a food I've not eaten for a long time, I get something like you.

My stomach just isn't what it used to be. Pulled out some old chili from the freezer yest. I suffered from cramps, gas, and bloating all night. Back to the bland.

I used my cast iron skillet last night to fry some sausage and cabbage for supper. 3 things I couldn't live without in the kitchen: microwave, convection oven, and cast iron skillet.

You know what they say - copper wire was invented by two Dutch fighting for a penny. And I love the story about the irrigation ditches!
