What's goin on with the beans? I buy the four pack, and the last three or four packs have been about one third sauce. Runny, watery sauce at that. Adjust something or hit someone or something.
Thank you.

Watched a programme about heinz
Inside the Factory  :y
https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b07nwlvg/inside-the-factory-series-2-3-baked-beans

..The plant up north..
Aye .... in Wigan  :y

It was that boldy bloke with the big gob doing it...
Greg Wallace .... I was on a rest day when they came but apparently he's equally as odious in the flesh as he is on the telly.

I found it very interesting ...

Surprised to find out the beans are cooked in a sealed tin .
Indeed .... and not a single bean is baked  ;D ;D ;D
Actually they are blanched first before they are put in the tin, then the sauce is added the lid & then cooked in the tin in a 5 pass cooker/cooler (most are anyway  ::))

Some of the really old kit has recently gone. The factory was opened in 1959 & it's only a couple of years ago that an original mixer was chucked out. Some of the originally conveyor motors are still on site though not used & they're monsters.

Filling lines vary in speed from 500 cans per minute (apart from the 92oz catering cans that are about 30 cans per min to the newest line that should have been commissioned Sept 2017 (and is still ongoing) that has a target of 1200 cans per min ... we're nearly there  ;D

My sister, who is in her fifties, has worked for John Lewis for years. The shoe department where she works has been quiet recently, so they moved her to a different role for a while.
Ready for this? They sell tins of quality street with whatever type of mix you want in them, so she spends all day filling the tins (plastic tubs nowadays) with the sweets that the customers ask for. I told her she should tell them to shove it, the bastards. But, of course, she needs the job.  >:(

That might not be too far down the line.
I hope it's not for another year though, I'm four years into a five year guarantee on one of my tellies  ;D

Magic :D

Presumably they are packed with a volume that allows just enough room for expansion... That said, if cooked longer at a lower temperature, this would become less of a problem  :-\

Did I say I contracted at Nestles/Rowntrees at Halifax years ago? ..... I actually enjoyed the job but the money that Nestles paid rather than the contractors paid wasn't enough.  :y :y
