Subject: RE: BS: the people who make the corned beef
In my last post, somehow the text got posted when all I wanted to do was have a preview. It didn't have the last paragraph, nor the attribution.

The last paragraph of the recipe:

    When done, remove meat and reduce 2 cups of cooking liquor by boiling until it begins to thicken. Pour over beef and cabbage, and serve. Remainder of cooking liquor may be placed in covered container and saved for future use.

    This is from The American Wine Cook Book, by Ted Hatch, 1941, which I bought in probably 1956, at its list price--are you ready for this?--$3.75! Wonderful cookbook!
