Seasoning Cast Iron with Flaxseed Oil

How to season cast iron pans in a household with a vegetarian has been a bit of an issue for us (well me really, I guess)... I've always sort of felt like we were never going to get that classic black matte finish that's perfectly non-stick if we were just using vegetable oil. Well apparently, the absolute best way to season cast iron is flaxseed oil (the food grade version of linseed oil). Maybe worth a try... her method is pretty hardcore though.
