This was my first attempt seasoning a piece of cookware. I used the following approach:
I scrubbed the wok down on both sides with a scouring pad and dish soap.
I then heated the wok up and moved the wok around the flame until it was blue all over.
I then took the wok off the heat, cooled it down with a bit of water, and gave it another scrubbing with the scouring pad and dish soap.
I then wiped the wok off with a kitchen towel. I left it for maybe a couple of minutes, and when I came back I noticed rust already
developing on the wok. I believe this was flash rust.
I then heated the wok up on the flame to dry it. I took the wok off
the flame and let it cool.
I then put some oil in the wok and heated it on the flame until it
was smoking to season it.
After all that, I think I have some flash rust under the seasoning. Please see the red circle in the picture. Is this rust, and does this mean I need to strip it and re-season it? If so, how could I avoid the having this happen again?
