TRIVIA: Every wonder how corned beef got its name?

From  The History of Corned Beef:

“The term “Corned” comes from putting meat in a large crock and covering

it with large rock-salt kernels of salt that were referred to as “corns of salt”

This preserved the meat.”

It has NOTHING to do with the vegetable, apparently.
