A St Patrick's Feast, Corned Beef and Cabbage the results!

It's here, You know what I’m talking about. That day, that holiday I love, St Patrick's. As a I wrote in my last posting I was going to cure my own corned beef. Well today is the day. It's done, I hope. Walking slowly to the refrigerator, I open the door and retrieve the brisket that I had lovingly put in brine not more than 10 day ago. Moving to the sink I think, “10 days, What am I going to find when I open that bag?” I open the zip top carefully and smell. Hmm no off smells, that's a good sign. I then pour off the brine and see that the gods of food preservation have rewarded me, with the gift of Corned Beef, well almost. It's not done yet.
