Use Salt to Clean Your Cast-Iron Pans……………..

It’s a fast and easy way to soak up the oils that could go rancid in the pan without using soap that will break down your seasoning and make your pan rusty. It will also help dry out any stuck-on bits for easier removal. Pour coarse kosher salt, or any salt you have available, into the still-warm skillet. Use a soft cloth or brush to scour the skillet. Dry immediately. Heat the skillet over a medium-low flame to evaporate the moisture.

Grilled Broccoli Rabe
In a rush to make dinner?
This quick and easy broccoli rabe recipe is packed with nutrition — and flavor!

Sometimes, you don’t have the time to cook fresh vegetables but luckily our grilled broccoli rabe is an easy alternative.

Ingredients
1 bunch broccoli rabe, tough lower stems removed
Extra virgin olive oil
Kosher salt
Pinch of crushed red pepper

Directions
1 – Immerse the rabe in a large bowl of tap water and let it hang out for 10 to 15 minutes.

2 – Preheat the grill to medium.

3 – Drain the rabe but DO NOT shake off the excess water. Toss the rabe with olive oil and salt and lay it on the grill in an even layer.

4 – Cook the rabe for 3 to 4 minutes per side, turning as needed so all sides grill. The rabe should start to soften and char. If it starts to char too quickly, spray or shake a few drops of water on it.

5 – When the rabe is tender, remove it from the grill, drizzle with a bit more olive oil, and add a sprinkey-dink of salt and crushed red pepper. Serve hot or at room temp.

Yield: 4 servings.

Serving size: 1/4 of recipe.
