Movie Night!

Because I'm starting to build the Sunsweet packing house in Campbell, it seems very appropriate to show the movie "A Fortune in Two Trunks", Sunsweet's documentary from 1951 about the origin of prunes in California as well as a detailed explanation of how prunes are processed.

If you, like I, always wondered about the oil tank and boiler near each packing house, you'll learn here how hot water and steam are used several times on the dried prunes for cleaning, re-hydrating, and easing packaging. If you're at all interested in the packing industries, watch the whole thing!
