On this episode of Time For Lunch, we’re delving into the stories behind of one of our very favorite cooking tools: the cast iron pan! Hannah and Harry learn about the process of making these heavy skillets from Isaac Morey or Smithey Ironware in Charleston, South Carolina. Plus, we explore cast iron’s 2,000 year long history, learn a new cornbread recipe, hear some jokes, and much more.
