How do you treat your cast iron pans? What oils, temperatures do you use?
I don't seem to have too much trouble with breads. I seem to really crave potato chips, which are gluten free, and I have indulged in as I've had many moments of weakness this past year. 10 pounds later, I'm realizing that I don't need them to be happy. Plus I've found more foods that I can eat. I'm finding that processed foods like chips and gluten free cookies etc. really give me some abdominal distress.
I use olive oil specifically extra virgin... I have a nickle allergy so any other kind of oil will have nickle deposits...
I rub it all over and then cook it at about 300 -350 degrees F.
I have tried lower degrees for longer but higher seems to work the best.
I love the cast iron because it crisps things so much faster. a crucial thing when it comes to not using oils in our cooking.
some people prefer to use lard on their cast Iron.. which you can do but there is that ethical animal issue for some people.
as to chips... I know it is a grease bomb but I have found that lays potato chips are easier on the tummy.... there is still the grease issue but they don't irritate my tummy
avoid the ruffles.. not sure what they do to those but even the plain chips bug me.
as to gluten free cookies i am similar to you... I can eat the home made kind but the store bought ones tenfd to irritate my tummy.
I assume there is a chemical in them that is bothering me as I can eat the regular ones.
Also whe you are cooking if the pan is heated before adding your food you have less sticking. And the cast iron makes excellent heated corn tortillas.

once in a while if it needs, i will wipe a little olive oil in with a paper towel... just a light glaze.
