The cast-iron skillet is a sturdy, versatile, traditional kitchen workhorse that 85% of us own but far fewer of us reach for daily, mostly because we have one or two recipes we use it for and otherwise it stays in the back of the cabinet. In "Cook It in Cast Iron: Kitchen-Tested Recipes for the One Pan That Does It All", the editors of Cook's Country will show you everything you need to know about cast-iron cookware and the many (and often surprising) dishes you can cook and bake in this multitasker of a pan, from the classic dishes everyone knows and loves like steak, perfect fried eggs, and cornbread, to innovative and inspiring recipes like skillet apple pie, pizza, and cinnamon swirl bread. Learn about this cast iron's history and what makes it uniquely American and let us show you how to shop for, season, care for, and clean this perfect pan. Beautifully illustrated in full color throughout, the recipes range from Green Chili Cheeseburger Sliders; Boneless Turkey Breasts with Cranberry Chutney; Southwestern-Style Chicken and Biscuits; and Crispy Pan-Fired Pork Chops with Succotash; to Italian-Style Sausage and pepper Subs; Fluffy Cornmeal Pancakes; Glazed Peaches with Pistachios; Hot Fudge pudding Cake; and Cinnamon Swirl Bread. A delight to browse through and an ideal reference for menu planning, "Cook It in Cast Iron: Kitchen-Tested Recipes for the One Pan That Does It All" will prove to be an enduringly popular addition to personal, family, and community library cookbook collections. It should be noted that "Cook It in Cast Iron" is also available in a Kindle edition ($15.99).
