Place corned beef in Dutch oven and barely cover with hot water; add onion, garlic, cloves, and bay leaves.
Cover and simmer {do not boil) 1 hour per pound of meat, or till fork tender.
Remove meat from liquid; add potatoes and carrots.
Cover; bring to boiling and cook 10 minutes.
Then add cabbage wedges; continue cooking 20 minutes longer or till vegetables are done.
To carve corned beef, cut at slight angle across the grain, making thin slices.
Spice Glaze: If you like, glaze the corned beef while vegetables cook.
Spread fat side of meat lightly with prepared mustard.
Then sprinkle with mixture of 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves.
Place in shallow pan.
Bake in moderate oven (350°) 15 to 20 minutes or till nicely glazed.
