Betty's Ocean View Diner on 4th Street used to have a breakfast they called the Philadelphia, which consisted of a slab of scrapple, with a poached egg on toast, and fried tomato slices. Corned beef I think goes into hash--with potatoes, etc. It makes a great breakfast. Is corned beef Kosher beef? Corned has that odd red color. Why is that?
Red because treated with nitrate, Lindsey says. Nitrate, the substance of fertilizers and ammunition, I add. "Corned" refers, I think, to the peppercorns in the pickling.
But Wikipediasays the "corn" (obs. English, "grain") refers to the salt, and goes on to assure us that, yes, brisket can be Kosher.
