@kevinlln 🇮🇩 MBOK JAMU GENDONG AND THE ANCIENT SECRET POTION “Jamu” is a traditional herbal medicinal draught that has been a part of the rich and ancient culture of Indonesia. Numerous health benefits of consuming jamu has been scientifically proven, ranging from curing and preventing ailment, maintaining fitness, reinvigoration, and even cosmetic purposes. The magic of this concoction lies within the lists of ingredients and methods of brewing, that has been passed down from generation to generation. In the old days, only certain classes of people could consume jamu, which were limited to royals and aristocrats. The ingredients and methods of each jamu was kept as a trade secret with each traditional brew master, called dukun or tabib. Nowadays, jamu has become a manufactured product, usually brewed and from small home industries and bottled neatly. The most interesting part of modern “Jamu” is the way of selling the product, which has become a culture itself. The bottles of jamu are placed in a basket and carried around by a salesperson, who are usually ladies. Thus, the ladies selling jamu is usually called Mbok Jamu Gendong. In Indonesia, “Mbok” is an informal salutation for married and older ladies, while “Gendong” means to carry around on their backs in English. These ladies then sell the jamu by travelling around their kampongs and surrounding areas. By this means, jamu can now be consumed by the masses in large. These Mbok Jamu usually carry 8 basic variants of jamu in their baskets, which are kunir asam (turmeric & tamarind), beras kencur (rice & aromatic ginger), cabe puyang (java long pepper), pahitan (green chiretta leaves), kunci suruh (fingerroot & betel leaves), kudu laos (cheese fruit & galangal), uyup-uyup (ginger & turmeric), and sinom (curcuma & turmeric), along with free-range chicken eggs, key lime fruit and honey. Consumers will tell the Mbok Jamu their health concerns and desired effect from the jamu. The Mbok Jamu will then measure the pre-existing basic jamu with the additional ingredients and blends it all in a drink, which is the end product of a jamu. 📷@fdphotohraphy90 Nat.Cos by @annisabanyuwangi #yayasanputeriindonesia
