Clean a Cast Iron Pan with a Potato

This originally came to me as a tweet from Food and Wine. Here is a link to the original article.

What you need: Coarse salt, oil and a potato.

What you do: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Sprinkle a generous amount of salt into the skillet. Cut the potato in half so that it fits in the palm of your hand. Place the spud, flat side down, onto the pan and scrub, pretty vigorously, in a circular motion. Once the pan is clean, rinse with water and pat dry.

Almost there: To season, pour a small amount of oil into the skillet and spread evenly with a paper towel so that the whole thing is covered in a thin layer. Place the skillet in the preheated oven for one hour. Remove from the oven, wipe off any excess oil and you’re ready to go.
