Brown patina on seasoned cast iron skillets

pandoobus | May 19, 2013 10:07 PM

Hello!
I recently seasoned my cast iron skillets for the first time, and they have a noticeably brown patina on them. They look almost bronze-like instead of the black that is normally associated with cast iron skillets. Is there a way to get that black color without having to completely start the seasoning process all over again? More importantly, is it safe to eat out of?
