The title is a bit misleading; some recipes are salads and don’t require heating anything, or have only fried bacon as the cooked item. These are rustic recipes and the authors like to use less-processed ingredients such as raw or brown sugar. Linda Morehouse notes her practice of altering cookie recipes by halving the shortening amount and using sour cream, Neufchatel cheese or olive oil for the other part. They do apologetically note when a recipe has no claim to being healthy. Some involve ingredients that aren’t common: goat, venison, deer liver. Not everyone has an entire cabinet of cast-iron and the authors note, “if you don’t have the cast-iron models, use their ordinary cousins.”
The advice to wipe gently with hot soapy water goes against all other advice I have seen. No soap of any kind is the mantra of most cast-iron users.
