By the way, the best thing about cast iron is that it is virtually indestructible.

Mr. Transier encourages cooks to season their cast iron to keep it functional for years to come.

The LSU Extension staff will discuss the benefits of cast iron cookware in regards to your health, and will demonstrate how cooking with cast iron provides a necessary mineral that your body needs.

Learn all of this and more when you attend this fun and informative program!

Mark your calendars for this Tuesday.

Join us at the Concordia Parish Library in Vidalia at 6 p.m.

This event is co-sponsored by the LSU AgCenter and is free and open to the public.
