My wife bought me two cast iron pans for my birthday. I read the instructions that came with the pans on how to season them and I followed them to the letter. Lightly coat the inner surface of the pan with shortening and place upside down in a 350 degree oven for an hour. Turn the oven off. Leave the oven door closed for several hours.
Did it. The pans came out gummy. Moreso on the side surface of the pan than on the bottom cooking surface, but sticky. There seems to be a yellowy coating on the pan where it is gummy. [p]So....two questions.[p]1. What did I do wrong?
2. How do I fix it?[p]Thanks for your help/advice/expertise in advance.[p]John
