I haven’t been too kind to my cast iron skillet over the years. From the looks of it (and the fact that everything put into would stick) I needed to re-season the pan.
I used a modified version of this seasoning method to “reboot” this pan.
The seasoning went pretty well, though the pan had some oil left in it after 2 hours of baking. The oil dried sticky which didn’t seem right. I threw it back on a burner, heated up the pan and gave it a wipe with paper towel and all seems well now.
