Place the meat in a large pot of cold water. make sure there is enough water to cover the meat by at least 2 inches. Bring to a boil and then discard the water. Repeat 3 times.

Cover with cold water again. Add pickling spice, celery, carrot, onion, bay leaf, peppercorns, and garlic. Bring to a boil. Turn the heat down so the cooking liquid is at low simmer and cook covered, for about 3 hours or until fork tender.

Preheat oven to 350°. Drain the water, reserving ½ cup liquid to prepare glaze if necessary. Place the corned beef in a deep 13-x9-inch roasting pan. Pour the glaze over the meat and bake, covered, for 35 to 40 minutes. Recipe may be made ahead. Using a very sharp knife, slice meat when cool; reheat slices.
