How to Cook With Graniteware

Graniteware pots and roasters are the large black pans with white speckles that your grandmother used to cook the Thanksgiving turkey in. Also referred to as enamel pots because of the enamel or porcelain coating the manufacturer uses, graniteware can be used to cook pasta, steam crabs, can fruits and vegetables and, of course, roast the Thanksgiving dinner centrepiece to perfection. Graniteware can be used on camping trips or at home, and graniteware pieces are often found in the camping section of large chain stores.

Things you need

GranitewearMeat thermometerCooking sprayPlastic scrubber or brush

Instructions

1 Adjust cooking times. Because of the materials used to make Graniteware, meat will roast faster than it will in a stainless steel or aluminium pan -- the steel centre and enamel/porcelain finish distribute heat more quickly and evenly. Check the centre of your pot roast or turkey with a meat thermometer twice as often as you normally would to prevent overcooking and a dry, tasteless entrée.

2 Use plenty of liquid. Whether you are using a Graniteware pasta pot, soup pot or your great-grandmother's roaster, make sure to have plenty of liquid or at least a layer of cooking spray or olive oil in the pan to prevent food from sticking and burning. Graniteware should not be cleaned with steel wool pads, and taking care to add plenty of liquid or a coat of oil will make cleanup much easier.

3 Clean your Graniteware with care. Use only a soft plastic brush or rubber scrubby on your Graniteware -- steel wool pads will scratch the enamel surface and cause the piece to rust. Soak your Graniteware for an hour in hot soapy water to help loosen burnt-on food.
