Did You Know?
The first metal cooking vessels that resemble today's Dutch ovens were used in the Netherlands in the 17th century, hence the name? Our modern versions are similar, simply thick-walled (usually cast iron) cooking pots with tight-fitting lids. They're often used for recipes that require long cooking either on the stovetop or in the oven, or both in the same recipe. Be sure that the pot you use is oven-proof.
