Snapshots from a kripik home business

10 May

In Indonesian villages, many people have home businesses whether it’s a toko (store with daily necessities like soap, shampoo, snacks, water, etc.), warung (a small restaurant) or salon, etc. On Sunday, I visited a school administrative assistant’s home.  We visited one of her neighbors who has a kripik home business. Kripik are chips often made from sinkong or pisang. That is kassava or bananas respectively. Here’s what this kind of little operation looks like: (Mouse over for captions)

And that’s how it’s done should you ever want to start a kripik business!

    that’s really interesting to see the process of how they make the stuff they sell you on the street, at least you know there’s not a bunch of chemicals added
