cast iron

cast iron onions, originally uploaded by candice quates.

This is actually just one onion. a one pound, five ounce onion, mind you.

This is my great-grandmother's cast iron dutch oven. I hope to see this pot's 100th birthday.

I estimate it and it's sister, a no.5 cast iron frying pan to be 80-something. My next oldest pans are in their 60s, I think.

Fabulous pot. I have a pretty wonderful collection of cast iron cookware, including corn ears & muffin pans. Some of it came from my dad's house, but most of it I've acquired over the years, mostly at flea markets.

I was actually just showing your cool ass card to an office mate. :)

Thanks! The muffin pans sound very cool. My dad has an old cobbler's nail sorter which is probably the most interesting piece I've seen.
