Broad beans

I've just podded a couple of handfuls of broad beans, for the first time in years. And the beans are all different sizes. Which makes me wonder: what do frozen food processors do with the rejects when they package broad beans, because they're always all the same size??? Does anyone know the answer?

Hey, thanks, I will be SO interested to hear the answer, now that I've thought of the question, it's mind-boggling ;)

Good point. There must be an awful lot of left over beans out there somewhere. I would love to know.
