Corned beef gets its name from the process of preserving the meat in a salty brine. The term “corn” refers to the large, coarse grains of salt used for the curing process. In the days before refrigeration, corning was a key way to store meat. We enjoy corned beef this time of year because it was traditionally served with the first spring cabbage – and break any fasts during Lent on Easter.
