Howdy! This is P Thickens from the Permies forums. Stainless Steel are wonderfully easy to care for. They're pretty much the same as cast iron, though some things like eggs will stick more. However they will heat up quicker, so boiling water happens much quicker. And they're absolutely tops to make roux-based sauces. To clean up, wash them as you do your plates, and if anything sticks, soak it then scrub it with the scratchy side of a sponge. That's it.

and then there is always nature to fool with, this years droughts and horrible late freezes zapped a lot of our plants..I know Paul is attempting to figure out how to extend seasons without greenhouses, and hoping to grow citrus in Montana..and I wish him luck and hope I can learn from that..but I'm just lucky to get the apples, peaches, pears and grapes !!..this year only 2 pears, no apples, no stone fruits and a few measly grapes made it through the blossom freezes.
