  Corned beef brisket 6 Pound
  Beets 12 Small, tops removed
  Boiling potatoes 12 Small, peeled
  Boiling onions 12 Small, peeled
  Carrots 12 , scraped
  Turnips 6 Small, peeled
  Green cabbage head 1 , cored and quartered
  Mustard 2 Teaspoon (For Accompaniment)
For the horseradish sauce
  Chilled whipping cream 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Prepared horseradish 5 Tablespoon
  Cider vinegar 3 Tablespoon
  Freshly ground pepper To Taste
  Salt To Taste

1) Under running water, rinse the corned-beef and place it in a large, deep pot.
2) Cover completely with cold water and over high flame, bring to a boil. Skim off any scum that tends to rise to the surface during the boiling process.
3) Bring the heat down to low flame, cover the pot partially, and allow to gently simmer for 3 hours. If serving is to be delayed, the meat can stay in the hot cooking liquid for another hour or two. Before going ahead with the vegetables, simple bring back to simmer.
4) Nearly 60 minutes before serving time, place the beets in a medium saucepan. Cover completely with water and allow to boil till the beets are tender with pierced. This generally takes about 40 minutes.
5) Drain the beets and peel when they are cool enough.
6) Put the peeled beets back in the saucepan and add some ladlefuls of the corned beef broth. Keep warm over low flame.
7) Add the potatoes to the corned beef being simmered while the beets are boiling and cook for about 10 minutes.
8) Add onions, turnips and carrots. Cook over low flame till the vegetables are completely tender. This takes about ½ hour. Add the cabbage wedges and cook over low flame for exactly 3 minutes.
9) To prepare the Horseradish sauce, whip the cream till it is stiff and then fold the vinegar and horseradish in the whipped cream. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
10) Take the meat out of the pot, slice it thinly and arrange it on a large warm platter. Surround with the vegetables cooked in the pot.
11) Drain the beets. Place them in a separate serving bowl.

12) Serve hot with mustard and Horseradish sauce on the side.
