I have finally found a source for really good corned beef. Miriam, however, feels that all corned beef is too salty to eat. I explored ways to “de-salt” my cured meat.

Chris requested New England Boiled Dinner for his birthday. According to Wikipedia: This is a “traditional New England meal, consisting of corned beef, or a smoked “picnic ham” shoulder, with cabbage and added vegetable items, often including potato, rutabaga, parsnip, carrot, white turnip and onion.” This is one of the original American “one pot meals.”
I have never been overly fond of corned beef and cabbage, but like most part Irish-Americans I have usually made it on St. Patrick’s Day. Part of the reason for this dislike was because, like most Americans, I would go to Safeway and buy the plastic package of bright red meat. This sour meat would be tossed in the pot with potatoes, carrots and cabbage to be boiled to death.
