I’ve heard a lot of people say that you should have at least one cast iron skillet in your kitchen. I’m sure my dad would agree, but he took it a bit further and for as long as I can remember, we always had multiple sizes in our kitchen. They were used for just about everything — frying eggs, cooking chicken, making tacos (both cooking the meat and the tortillas), or maybe the occasional dessert. My dad taught me early on in my life how to properly care for cast iron skillets, including seasoning them. Since my daily chore as a teen was cleaning our kitchen, I was quite good at it (even if I didn’t really want to be good at it). But, as an adult, it’s one of the many lessons I’m grateful for.
When my dad passed away, his cast iron skillet collection had grown to at least 10 of them. Mostly bought second hand at thrift stores or yard sales. He has them in multiple sizes and weights, hanging on the wall in his kitchen, which serve not only as storage but also decor.
Today, we’re sharing a delicious recipe for a Cast Iron Skillet Bing Cherry Crumble recipe that you can bake and serve right in a cast iron skillet. If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, you can certainly substitute another oven-safe pan or baking dish, but I highly recommend that if you don’t have a cast iron pan that you should add at least one into your kitchen.
While this cherry dessert is easy to make, the step that will take you the most time will be pitting your fresh bing cherries. Luckily, this is made so much easier with the use of a Cherry Pitter, which I highly recommend you use. I’m not a fan of kitchen tools that do only one job, but a Cherry Pitter is where I make an exception. It really will make your life easier if you are planning to do any recipes with fresh cherries.
We also think that this Cast Iron Skillet Bing Cherry Crumble is best served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped topping.
