DALLAS, July 12, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Culinary Musings (http://www.culinarymusings.com) has relaunched their site in a new direction. Prior to the relaunch, Culinary Musings offered easy recipes for general cooking. The new site focuses on Dutch Oven recipes, care of cast iron cookware, and other topics related to Dutch oven cooking.
The new direction of the Culinary Musings web site is a reflection of the growing interest in traditional cast iron cooking. Dutch Oven cooking groups are popping up all over the United States as a way for people to get together to share favorite recipes and socialize over home cooked meals," explains Barbara Wade, one of the writers for the Culinary Musings web site.
"Almost any recipe that can be cooked in your home oven can be adapted for cooking in a Dutch oven," Wade continues. "You use the number of coals to regulate temperature."
There are a number of benefits to cast iron cooking including being able to use less oil when cooking in a well seasoned pan, increasing iron in your diet by cooking in cast iron (especially when cooking acidic foods like tomato sauce), and providing a chemical-free non-stick surface.
The relaunch of the site reflects a change in direction from general cooking tips to focus more on Dutch oven cooking. Dutch ovens are heavy (usually cast iron) cookware that have a tight fitting lid. Dutch ovens used for outdoor cooking usually have short legs to lift the pot above the coals and a flat top with a raised edge to hold coals on the top of the lid. The temperature inside the pot is controlled by the number of coals placed under and on top of the pot. The cast iron pots conduct the heat evenly. There is usually a loop handle on the top of the pot which allows the cook to lift the pot with a hook. Dutch ovens come in a variety of sizes and shapes including the traditional round pot, skillets and frying pans.
The new Culinary Musings web site features articles and videos on caring for your Dutch oven, how to cook with a Dutch oven and easy recipes to make in your cast iron cookware.
