History of Corned Beef
Corned beef got its name from its method of preservation. Salt is heavily used to preserve corned beef, and pellets of salt, some as large as kernels of corn, were called "corns." Corned beef was originally primarily exported from Ireland, but not canned, starting in the 1650s. The American colonies took up the practice of exporting corned beef to the Caribbean in the 1780s, and Irish immigrants in the 1800s popularized the dish in the U.S.
