Get My Iron From a Pan?

For vegetarians and vegans who have a hard time getting iron into their diet, consider this:

Take an iron skillet and simmer up a tasty tomato sauce. The tomatoes contain Vitamin C, which is acidic, and will thus leach iron from the pan and into the sauce.

FYI: Increasing ones iron is a slow process that often takes months to accomplish.
