Apple Glazed Brisket

This is a really nice change of pace from the usual brisket and has a great taste also.

You need the following ingredients:
a medium onion quartered
2 cut up cloves of garlic
10 whole cloves
10 ounce jar of apple jelly
3 tablespoons full of good brown mustard
minced green onion (scallion) about 3-4 tablespoons
3/4 tsp pepper
3/4 tsp curry powder and salt to taste.

Put the brisket in a large heavy stew pot and add water to cover it up half way only and put in the cloves and the quartered onion.
Simmer this for 2 1/2 hours approx til the beef is nice and tender.
Now drain off the water and preheat the oven to 325°F.
Meanwhile mix the apple jelly, mustard, green onions and curry powder, salt and pepper in a small saucepan and bring to a boil . You are making a glaze with this.
Put the beef into a shallow baking dish and glaze over with the sauce and bake now in the heated oven for about 45 minutes.
Baste often to keep the glaze on the beef and to allow its flavor deep inside.

This recipe takes some time but you will agree its worth it.
Serve with parsleyed new potatoes and green beans.
