corned beef

Many of the corned beef products you see in grocery stores these days have labels that say "uncured," but that's not really accurate. They have been cured, but the curing has occurred with nitrates and nitrites in added celery juice powder, sea salt or unrefined sugar — and not by the customary large grains of salt, accompanied by a small amount of sodium nitrite.
