Pickled Tongue Or Corned Beef
Place the meat in a large stone crock. Mix the salt, pickling spice, saltpeter, sugar and garlic with 1 quart water and pour over the meat. Add enough water to completely cover the meat. Use a heavy bowl or board to weight the meat down. Cover the crock with cheesecloth, tie it in place, then cover the cheesecloth with aluminum foil.
