Beeswax is a natural lubricating compound with many benefits when used to season your cast iron skillets. First of all, you are using a natural product made by the bees and it seems to last longer than any other method of seasoning, at least from what I have experienced so far. Beeswax is also a natural protectant, it is a natural source of Vitamin A, and it has anti-bacterial properties as well. Cooking with cast iron cookware is better for your health as it fortifies your food that you cook in it with iron and you don’t have to worry about chemicals that you don’t want leaching into your food.
To Season Your Cast Iron Pans With Beeswax
-Scrub your cast iron cookware with hot water if needed and sometimes we use a metal spatula if we have to scrape off any stuck on food although this is rare. We do not use dish soap and do not recommend it.
-Place beeswax bar directly into a cast iron pan or skillet.
-Next you will want to warm up a cast iron pan to melt your wax slowly until it becomes a liquid consistency.
-Then spread evenly with a clean cloth or paper towel (better yet brown thin paper towels work nicely) and evenly coat the wax all over your cast iron cookware.
-Lastly you place your pans in the oven at 450 degrees until it stops smoking and it will smoke quite a bit so you may want to ventilate
your kitchen prior to doing this. This may also be done on an outdoor grill but you have to monitor very closely as the temperature can
get too hot very quickly.
-Place pans out to cool on pot holders and then they will be ready for cooking.
