I made Corned Beef this week using Michael Ruhlman's pickling spice recipe. The meat came out very tasty, as did the leftover water in which I simmered the beef (although it was a bit salty). I have about 6 cups worth of the water which I don't want to pour down the drain. What can I make with it? I've thought of making split pea soup without adding the ham bone. Any other ideas? Thanks!
