Or maybe it's one of those "humidifier" teapots that sat on the wood stove,
just to put some moisture back in the air, not for 'drinking' hot water.

Subject: [Sca-cooks] Another cast iron question

I've been cleaning and caring for decades, but this one has me stumped.  My
daughter (the brunette who acts ditzy, not the blonde who acts intelligent)
knows I love to cook with cast iron when camping.  So, when she saw an
antique cast iron teapot at a yard sale, she bought it for me.  It must have
been a true yard sale, because the thing was covered with mud, and rust, and
other nasty things.  I've got it nice and clean now, and I've seasoned it.
It's a beautiful shiny black, again.  
But, ya know what?  I cannot for the life of me figure out how to use it to
boil water without getting the water either oily or rusty.  Anyone have
suggestions or solutions?
