It was in the 17th century that the term ‘corned beef’ was invented by the British. It was used to describe the salt crystals which were used to cure the meat. It was Ireland that became the centre for corned beef producing one of the best quality. Soon after Ireland exported it to Europe as well as the Americas. However, this kind of beef was different from what is available in the markets today – the earlier versions contained more salt. The Irish corned beef was supplied to British and French navies and had a huge demand. The demand was so high that even though Britain was at war with France, ships were allowed by England to stop in Ireland to buy corned beef. However, the producers of corned beef could themselves not afford to have it and their staple food item was potato. It was in the 18th century that the North American colonies started producing their own corned beef and it was then that the Irish glory days were over. The potato plight soon broke out which led to the birth of the Great Famine, leaving millions of Irish dead while others immigrated to the United States. Once in the US, the Irish settled in urban areas and were making better money and could afford corned beef – the kind their ancestors were famous for. They bought it from kosher butchers made from brisket and a cut of meat from the front of the cow. The cooking and salting process involved made the meat tender and highly flavourful.
