  • Joy McCabe - Kathy,
    Great story and beautiful pictures. I too inherited cast iron from my mother which I treasure. Now it’s almost impossible to find these unusual cast iron pieces.ReplyCancel

    • KathyMillerTime - I am so happy to hear you also have special cast iron pieces. Isn’t it wonderful to see the renewed interest in cooking with cast iron? I also saw an article on golfer, Davis Love III about his great collection of old cast iron.ReplyCancel

    • KathyMillerTime - Rory, so glad you enjoyed this post. I love Maine!!! How fortunate for you to have a sister with a cottage in Kennebunk. We loved Kennebunkport when we visited.
