Happy St Patrick’s Day! I eat my corned beef with …
… orange marmalade. Yes, you read that right. It’s the only way I’ll eat it. It probably comes from the fact that my Hungarian grandmother always served us meat and fish with fruit or some type of sweet jelly or sauce (lamb with mint, flounder with peaches, pork with applesauce, steak with raspberry jam). Don’t knock it ’til you try it! It’s actually pretty good.
Every year, my housemate makes the complete corned beef dinner, but usually, all I eat is a plate of corned beef with marmalade (usually the lower sugar variety). I can’t wait for tonight! I look forward to this day every year! How do YOU eat your corned beef?

Corned beef with marmalade sounds good! The hubster and I eat ours with bacon, cabbage, and onion. I don’t know if that’s traditional or not, but it’s easy.:-)
Yeah, Charles makes all of that, too, and they also eat it with hot horseradish sauce. I just eat the meat and marmalade. I’m totally full now!!
