Dear Heritage Foods USA Supporter,

Back before refrigeration, the brisket was one of the last cuts eaten from the fall slaughter from the year before, one of the last protein resorts to get people through a long winter. Its location on the very fatty breast area of the cow made itself an excellent candidate to preserve, especially in the form of corned beef. A myriad of festivals and banquets dedicated to celebrating the survival of winter made this a centerpiece of holidays throughout history.

Please enjoy our recipe from one of our newest supporters PJ Clarke’s of New York City, who can tell you how to turn this wonderful cut into delicious corned beef.
