          I think it describes the condition one must be in for one to want to eat it. pb

              Oh, Mary Kitchen! I love your hash. I used to eat it when camping, but it can't hold a candle to the fresh made stuff at a deli that makes it from the corned beef on site. I love it creamy on the inside and crusty on the outside from griddling on the flattop.

                If it's anything like where pineapple juice comes from, then I'd think twice about eating it. I worked in a pineapple cannery as a teen and whatever couldn't go into the other cans (rings, tidbits, chunks) would end up in the crusher and sold as crushed pine. At the very bottom of the rung was pineapple juice. I could tell you what really went into the juice, but I won't. Let's just say I haven't had a can of pineapple juice ever since I was a teenager.

                  Please, all the piny details. We're all adults here, and most of us have had to deal with what our kids left for us in their nappies. We can take it.

                  So, what's the scoop on pineapple juice?

                    OK, since you asked. Nothing of the pineapple fruit go to waste. The crowns are removed and are replanted for the next crop. The nice fleshy parts are machine sliced into rings, chunks and tidbits. The undersized or oversized fuits, and the crooked, uneven, or broken slices end up as crushed pineapple. The crushed pineapple is checked and picked over to remove anything that doesn't look like the fruit. EVERYTHING ELSE goes into the juicer. This includes the skin, the core, all of the trimmings, seeds, dirt, worms, pesticides, bugs, roaches, and anything else that falls onto the conveyor best. There are conveyor belts running all throughout the cannery catching all the juices from the workers gloves, tables, and everywhere else. There was this tiny old man who would walk around with his little oil can and squirt all of the machinery, right over the conveyor belt and I would see drips of oil going down to the juicer every so often. He kept those machines well oiled!

                    Sadly, this was the last viable pineapple cannery in the country and it closed its doors last year as labor and other costs made importing much cheaper. It provided jobs for most of the teenagers and many housewives for many years.

                      Well, apparently I am on the opposite sides of the spectrum.I like potted meat-no worse ingredients than a hot dog, IMO.I like pineapple,and am not overly concerned about the conditions that offlady described.That was a long time ago and I am still alive.Again, I repeat"I am afraid of tornadoes, but dont live in my basement".

                          I have never had corned beef hash from a can so I'm afraid I can' comment on that. Unless you happen to come across a Jewish originated deli, corned beef here means that chopped up catfood type stuff. I think the nearest we would have to American corned beef would be varieties of salt beef.

                          As a child I used to eat, without much enthusiasm, the canned catfood type. Mainly because it was cheap and there were so many other things I didn't eat that I would feel guilty for making a fuss about it. As well as sandwiches my family would make variations on hash with it, or add it at the last minute to a vegetable, or added to baked beans. I will now sometimes very occasionally buy the ready sliced type you can get in supermarkets. I like SPAM sometimes these days too. I get an occasional craving for it, I probably eat maybe 2-3 small tins a year.

                          Potted meat here is meat paste you get in a jar, the most well known company that makes it is Shippams : http://www.britishsupermarketworldwide.com/acatalog/Sandwich_Filling.html

                          This kind of stuff originated from when we used to use up every scrap of animals killed at the autumn/winter slaughter and preserve them in earthenware jars under a thick layer of fat. I can't bear the jarred meat paste type but I like my mum's home made potted beef, which is like a kind of very coarse pate and involves a lot of homemade pure beef dripping and butter and also the pork rilletes made by the guy who runs the local little farm foods deli round the corner. So yummy on hot toast with cornichons on the side ! weirdly enough my mum prefers the jarred nastiness

                            Can anyone tell the difference between Mary Kitchen and Libby's for corned beef hash? I always noticed the Mary Kitchen costs a little more.

                            And for that matter are these the only two brands of hash that are sold? I know there are store brands, but I've never seen any other brand besides Mary and Libby. This is unlike what I see for tuna or salmon where there are a handful of major brands as well as some upscale/gourmet/import brands.

                              Another major brand is Prudence. In fact I think it's the only item they sell. I use it on occasion, it's pretty good and crisps up nicely.
                              I sometimes add chopped sun dried tomatos and a little tobasco sauce for a variation. Chow Jim
