Stupid " safe to eat " question but have to ask...is there a ton of nitrates in corned beef? Should I just skip it?

Thanks!

In many (most) brands, yes. You can find nitrate-free corned beef, even in standard grocery stores. We bought some that was just brisket, salt, sugar, and spices. I will look to see what brand and try to get back to you.

Well, my dad is coming over and making it for us, so it's already bought.  I'm pretty sure he didn't get the nitrate free one, knowing him.

 

I'll just have a taste and gorge on cabbage and potatoes...:(

 

Thanks!

If you add something with vitamin C, it can counteract some of the nitrates.  :)
