National Corned Beef Hash Day


National Corned Beef Hash Day, on September 27th, adds flavor to every dish, as well as washing out the fridge.

Making corned beef hash is a great way to use up leftovers. Corned beef hash became extremely popular during and after World War II. Since rationing restricted the availability of fresh meat, corned beef filled the void. Cooks became more creative with herbs, spices, and leftovers. Nothing was wasted. Stretching a meal became a priority in lean times.

The Hormel Company claims to have sold corned beef hash and roast beef hash to the United States as early as 1950. Betty Wason, a World War II reporter, includes a corned beef hash dish in her Cooking Without Cans cookbook, which was published in 1943. Hash has existed as part of the American diet for at least the 19th century. The dish's many recipes before that time also attest to the country's love of the dish, as well as the existence of many "hash houses" named after the dish.
