      How to season a new Dutch oven

      Cast-iron cooking utensils can give a metallic flavor to foods
      prepared in them if they are not properly seasoned. Floyd calls
      this seasoning process "sweetening ."
      Here is an unusual seasoning method used by Harold Nelson, ranch
      cook Estes Park, Colorado:

      Fill the skillet or Dutch oven with water and boil a handful of dry
      hay. The hay can be alfalfa or grass mix. Boil the hay at a rolling
      boil for about twenty minutes. Then you can rinse the utensil and
      rub it with cooking oil. You can also use the water from the boiled
      hay to sweeten wooden or tin dishes. Soak the dishes for at least 20
      minutes.
