I've tried three times to come up with a suitable reply, and failed. Sorry.

Well, that settles it. Marmite, cheese and tomato sandwiches for breakfast....btw, it's very dead yeast, harmless.

The last time Dog was at the house I tried Vegemite. I had it on a piece of toast with real butter and just a thin spread of Vegemite on top.

It is a bit salty, with a touch of yeasty flavor that is almost beef like. It helps to think of it as a condiment that enhances the flavor of other stuff kind of like we use hot sauce down here in the South.

I could see where it would be good in soups, stews, chili, sandwiches, etc... as a flavor enhancer. Personally, I liked it on toast with butter. I think it would be great on a BLT sandwich too.

I think where most Americans get off on the wrong foot with Vegemite or Marmite is that they think of it more like a savory jam or jelly, and that's just not the way to approach your first tasting. It's better to think of it more like vegetarian potted meat. Seriously.

Also be careful if you give it to young kids.

A thick layer can feel a bit like burning in their mouth.

I couldnt eat proper marmite when I was a kid although was fine with supermarket brand yeast extract.

Ever thought this forum might be a lot less random if any of us actually read the contents of each others posts?

I like to take a big teaspoon of it and stir it into a mug of hot water...makes a great OXO-like broth.

I have a jar of unopened Vegemite that I bought in Fiji over 30 years ago. Dog and Jonk both thought it would still be good. Maybe it would go well with Twinkies.

Hands down it's Marmite! Preferably on a doorstep of granary bread (which only now exists in Wholeapaycheck), thick spread of unsalted butter, two soft boiled eggs..... Yu-ummmm!
