Layah BS: the people who make the corned beef (67* d) RE: BS: the people who make the corned beef 15 Mar 05


The internet is useless! I decided to do a search to see if I could find out the true story of Irish versus Jewish corned beef. The Jewish corned beef I have had tasted very different from the Irish corned beef that I have had. But the internet is useless.

There is a story that the Irish had corned beef and cabbage on Easter. The beef had been corned to preserve it over lent. This story was quoted in many different web pages, using the exact same wording without any referencing! Nobody admitted they had just taken their information wholesale from some other site. I found one site that quoted this, citing the USDA as the source, and then said they were wrong. Beef was very rare and expensive, and most likely they had a bacon joint.

As for Jewish corned beef I found absolutely zero information. One or two recipes and that was it. I have lost all faith in the internet and will sever my connection immediately never to go online again. Or do you think that might be overreacting?
