Variations on this recipe to balance the saltiness, Member slowhands95128

Corned beef is brined in salt water, by definition. The ""corn"" is the coarse salt. That is how it is preserved, much like ham. Because it's saltly, always, I add a few spices to balance the salt. I use extra water to cover, and add about 2 TBSP brown sugar or maple syrup, 1/2 cup vinegar -- and as a variation sometimes I throw in a lemon, halved. I find the extra water, slight sweetness and acidity mellow the salt. You may or may not like the lemon, try it once to see.
