FLAT STANLEY PROJECT
STUDY TOUR TO THE SALTED FISH INDUSTRY WITH MR FLAT STANLEY
On Thursday, October 7 Th. 2004, our school BPK PENABUR Bandar Lampung and Mr. Flat Stanley visited the salted fish industry in Batu Payung, Tarahan Village, South Lampung Regency. We met Mr. Pasek there. He is salted fish entrepreneur. He has some workers. They made salted fish from small and medium big fish. We interviewed him. We got some information from him about how to make salted fish, as follows:
1. Ingredients : fish, iodized salt, and salt water.
2. Tools :
o. Candang (a small basket with holes made of bamboo)
o. Laha (a bamboo flat for drying fish)
o. Stove (made of bricks, zinc and board)
3. How to make:
a. Sprinkle some salt on the wet fish and put the fish in order, leave them for about 2 hours.
b. Put salty fish into boiling salt water using candang for about 2 minutes
c. The last step, put the cooked fish on laha and dry them in the sun.
There is particular way to dry the fish to avoid them from being rotten, I e:
Dry the small fish in 3 – 4 hours, and for the big fish you needs any longer time.
Keep the salted fish away from the rain.
Mr. Pasek said that he had distributed his alter fish to Jakarta, and his product got the best quality.
The advantages of our study tour:
We increase our knowledge about how to make salted fish.
We understand that the sunshine is very important for drying up some salted fish.
We conclude that salt is very important for food preservation, because it can delay the growth of bacteria and fungus.
We hope that Mr. Flat Stanley would also be satisfied with this study tour to the salted fish industry. During in Bandar Lampung Mr Flat Stanley wears the traditional clothes of Lampung (tapis).
