Sunday is usually my day to go shopping for the week and yesterday I completed the task admirably. I bought the usual cookies, milk, chocolate bars and something called “oranges.” I jest, but I did come across something that made me think. Does anybody actually eat Hereford brand canned corned beef? I’ve seen this many times before and I have never tried it because it reminds me of canned ham. The kind that has the jelly and weird liquid surrounding it. Growing up at home we used to have canned ham frequently mostly because my Mom loved it. We lived on farm with deep freezers full of fresh beef, pork and chicken….but no, we had to have canned ham!
I digress. Back to the canned corned beef. Clearly, it seems to be popular. One grocery store I went to had only one can left on the shelf while the second grocery store I went to appeared to be sold out of it yesterday! Is it that popular? Is it good? I feel compelled to try it as I love corned beef but if it contains a jelly like substance than count me out! I love jello, but not around a meat.
