[Spit-Project] Seasoning unglazed cookware

I use ceramics all the time.

I havent used the ones from historic enterprises, but my experiences with the pipkins, pots, 
skillets, etc from other folks have been universally good

1. mine have never required seasoning, as they've always had glaze on the inside, at least. I dont 
know how this would affect their heat proofedness :)

2. I am NOT nice to my ceramics. I put them full of food on the edge of the fire and slowly turn 
them, moving them in more and more. I end up with them IN the coals. 

listen for pinging or crackling noises.

full pipkins are more heat stable than partially empty ones (like how you can boil water in a paper 

fondue in a pipkin rocks :)

hope this helps!
