A couple years ago we shared a few of our favorite Dutch ovens, plus recipes to put them to work. But products come and go, and many of our 2011 picks have since become unavailable. So we thought it was time to revisit our favorite pot and look at the current crop of Dutch ovens for fall cooking.
Read on for five big and beautiful cast iron Dutch ovens at a variety of price points — plus ten recipes to put your own big pot to work. If you already have the Dutch oven of your dreams but don't use it enough, this is the roundup for you. Baked pumpkin oatmeal, barbecue pulled chicken, bread with a shatteringly crisp crust, and an easy batch of jam — the Dutch oven does all this and more.
