Wikipedia helped me to understand corned beef’s significance in history and our American culture. A little aside– When my daughter was going to school in Chicago I went to visit one week in March…in Chicago they color the river running through the middle of the city GREEN for St Paddy’s Day!

Below is information gleaned from Wikipedia:

“Saint Patrick’s Day

In the United States, consumption of corned beef is often associated with Saint Patrick’s Day.[19] Corned beef is not an Irish national dish, and the connection with Saint Patrick’s Day specifically originates as part of Irish-American culture, and is often part of their celebrations in North America.[20]

Corned beef was used as a substitute for bacon by Irish immigrants in the late 19th century.[21] Corned beef and cabbage is the Irish-American variant of the Irish dish of bacon and cabbage. A similar dish is the New England boiled dinner, consisting of corned beef, cabbage, and root vegetables such as carrots, turnips, and potatoes, which is popular in New England and another similar dish, Jiggs dinner, is popular in parts of Atlantic Canada.

Corned beef, or salt beef in some of the Commonwealth of Nations, is salt-curedbrisket of beef.[1] The term comes from the treatment of the meat with large-grained rock salt, also called “corns” of salt. Sometimes, sugar and spices are added to corned beef recipes. Corned beef is featured as an ingredient in many cuisines. ”
