So here's the thing. I've been researching starting to make chocolates and confections as a business from home. There are loads of restrictions and permits and legal things to review. My question is..." Is there anyone out there that started from the home kitchen? What kind of things ie problems or words of caution can you offer. Or is it possible? I want to be legit but also not have a ton of over head. Any advice would be great? I will also post this in start up central as I am not sure which place would be best suited? look forward to hearing from anyone...

Joe and The'a - rather than doing this in the comments please start a discussion on the topic. That will make it easier for everyone to follow.

Tell me what you do to temper it.
Comment by The'a on January 2, 2010 at 4:46am
hello joe, I'm still learning on molding, but the color a little bit pale while I want to serve it. I temper it standardly without refrigerator. o.. ya, I use a standard brand of chocolate here, Chocolatta, for a beginner and a little bit cheaper it's commonly use in my country. so, how could I make it shine when I wanna serve it, joe? how about dipping, could we make it shine too? do they have the same procedure? thank very much for your kindness, joe^_^

Hi Manju,
You do not need a chocolate making machine to make chocolate. I does make it easier but living in India you may encounter some climate problems. Heat and humidity play a big role in chocolate making.

I would suggest that you try hand tempering first to see if you can do it where you are located before investing in a machine.
