Chickens, Entrepreneurship,& Processing Oh My!
Today we broke down chickens again, it was a lot easier than yesterday because they weren't frozen. We also talked about Entrepreneurship and different ideas and innovations. We were separated into groups of two and we had to brainstorm about new ideas and opportunities such as, a training camp to help prevent obesity for kids around the world. YMCA's could have free summer camps that could get kids involved in sports and eating healthy foods. There was a question that asked us what could be some good uses for an empty plastic detergent bottle. We came up with; a piggy bank, a water cooler, weights, and a gas container. We went back to the kitchen to strain our chicken broth that has been simmering for two days. This will be used for a pan sauce for the chicken which we will saute on Thursday. Another thing we did was blanch and shock zucchini and squash after we chopped them up. We completed the process by packaging, labeling, and freezing them for later use.
