What's the point of asking a question...it appears no one answers them anyway.
I think Trish asked a question that many people are asking themselves.
BHG needs to get on the stick!!!
Her question was over a year ago and you STILL haven't given her an answer.

I usually add a bottle of beer to my slow cooker when I'm making corned beef and if it's a lighter beer, a bit of apple cider or coconut sap vinegar gives it that extra oomph.
