Spring is in the air! This is my favorite time of year: spring training baseball is on the radio, Mother Nature is providing us with some gorgeous sunny days between all the rain, and one of the most fun celebrations on the calendar is right around the corner.

That’s right, St. Patrick’s Day is almost here, and whether your entire family is from the Emerald Isle or you’re just Irish at heart, St. Patrick’s Day is a great excuse to have some friends over to enjoy a pint or two of Irish stout and some corned beef and cabbage. For our recipe, be sure to brine it for as long as recommended. The salt in the brine carries the flavor of our Pickling Spice through the whole piece of meat and the extra spices reserved for the cooking liquid lend it a great burst of flavor on the surface. This St. Patrick’s Day be safe, enjoy some delicious corned beef and remember:

“May the lilt of Irish laughter
lighten every load.
May the mist of Irish magic
shorten every road…
And may all your friends remember
all the favors you are owed!”
