What can I say, but another week is over! The week started out with shipping a lot of trucks across the nation. We shipped to Kaiser, Vlasic and Heinz this week. With having more time working in the office, I was able to take on more responsibilities such as entering information into the computers and printing reports to send to the companies. I even sent out reports to the president of Hartung Brothers, Inc. We started making new brine to get ready for the busy season ahead so we started testing the brine mixture. It has also been nice weather this past week unlike last week when we had lots of rain and tornado sirens. I can't believe I have been here for two weeks! I have learned a lot about the company and can't wait for work next week!
Did you know?: Many people consider pickle brine a useful commodity, with its complex flavor of spices, salt, vinegar, and pickled vegetables. It’s been used as a soup stock, a hangover remedy, a drink, and—for many eastern European women—a cosmetic. There are even reports of some American roller-skating rinks selling pickle-brine snow cones.
