This recipe, minus the chicken stock, was made by my grandmother who was born and raised in Ireland. She would just use a ham bone. In Ireland, then did not eat corned beef and cabbage, it was always ham and cabbage. When Irish immigrants moved to Boston, the jewish neighborhood was nearby. They suggested the corned beef instead, due to the fact that at that time in Boston, corned beef was much cheaper tha ham. That is the reason for the change, however ham and cabbage is actually the Irish original recipe.
