Yesterday was a very green day, it was green beans as far as the eye could see, about 800 lbs. worth! Pretty much the whole day consisted of slicing green beans to prepare them for various over processes. We all started with the slicing, which I noticed we all have our own methods of slicing, and about two hours later two of us moved to another area to blanch and shock the cut green beans, it was a team work based activity, really. We did this for about an hour, then we moved back to the slicing area to prepare more for the next day, because we get to do all of the same processes and more today! Today we will be bag, cryovac, label, and freeze all of the green beans that were blanched and shocked yesterday.
