Subject: BS: marmite and the gaza strip
From: The Sandman
Date: 22 Nov 12 - 03:37 AM

The British Foreign and commonwealth office decided in 1999 tro launch an inititiave to solve the israel palestine crisis. They consulted mr de bono, who sugested sending them lots of marmite, apparently the middle eastern diet lacks zinc,zinc counteracts irritability.
perhaps the idea should be tried again, a kind of 21 century version of marie antoinettes "let em eat cake", more humane than selling them guns, anyway.

Trouble with Marmite, as we all know and they admit in their own advertising, you either love it or you hate it*. Wonder which side would do which?

~M~

*I, personally, can quite easily take it or leave it alone for that matter; but then I was never the typical advertiser's Mr Average dreambody.

The believe the only kosher marmite is produced in South Africa, and some countries do not recognize it as kosher (possibly Israel, as it is hard to find there). So, there was a danger that it could be used as a offensive weapon, Hamas shooting jars of it over to Tel Aviv, disrupting the Kosher diet? Hardly anything the west would condone.

LOL olddude, you and jelly! I can't imagine anything more ghastly than Marmite jelly. UGH! I adore Marmite, but only about once every six months; I get a sudden craving and have it on toast for two or three days. Then I don't want any more. It's the same with peanut butter. It seems to me there are indeed certain vitamins or minerals in these two products which the body needs to top up from time to time. By the way, I do feel the terrible situation in the Gaza strip is not one to be treated flippantly. My heart aches for the poor civilians caught up in the conflict, and for the families of the dead. Let's hope the ceasefire will hold.

I would agree re flippancy, Eliza, it is certainly a nasty business.

That said the proposal was at least a semi-serious one, making the point that an intractable problem may require a radically different approach if a solution is to be found.

This contemporary article gives more background.

Ah, don't forget, Eliza, that jelly in US terms is Jam. Marmite and Strawberry Jam Butties. Mmmmmmm :-)

I am not sure about the opening sentiments though. Pretty sure that Marmte could be used as an offensive weapon. Particularly Marmite Gold (Look it up yourself!)

I Canada, (at least where I am from) the terms jelly and jam differs.
Jam has full berries/fruit. Jelly is a strained and clear fruit mixture.

So, what the heck does it taste like? Can anyone describe it so Dan knows what to do if it's offered? This is a serious situation. Dan is a highly trained US Military officer who has trained others in survival, including eating stuff that most would not and in how to kill a man 50 different ways... are there 51 ways? Well, 52 if you include lime jello.

How to describe a flavour Gnu?

It is slightly meaty flavoured with a high salt content, definitely what you would call savoury.

People like/hate it in roughly equal numbers, and a recent TV documentary suggested that some people may be genetically pre-disposed to like, or hate, certain groups of flavours.

Thanks, Don ~~ yeast, of course. Don't know where I got malt from. The flavour is savoury rather than sweet [hence the malapropicity of the jell-o suggestions]; somewhat salty and yeasty. As Don sez, that is about as far as one can go in describing a flavour, without going into the sort of silly jargon that wine correspondents tend to use.

The Japanese use the term 'Umami'. Probably the closest we get is super-savoury.

מיכאל, you might have missed my point. Vegemite and Marmite compare similarly as Pepsi and Coke. Down Under, friendships and marriages are at risk, no matter how high the content of zinc.

Opium may serve the purpose better - or not.

I used to make my own 'marmite' - you need flaked edible yeast which is a byproduct from brewing beer. Most health food shops will have it and some supermarkets as well. NOT brewer's yeast or breadmaker's yeast!!!! Flaked yeast - the edible variety.
Then mix in some soy sauce until it's a consistency that you want - maybe very thick or it can be runny. The taste also depends on the type of soy sauce you use - dark soy, light soy or mushroom soy. The latter is my choice. Vegemite is supposed to be the same but I can taste a difference and don't like it. Also, English Marmite is more salty than NZ/Aussie Marmite. But right now the Marmite factory in Christchurch is damaged after the Canterbury earthquake last year and you just can't get NZ Marmite in any of the shops. You can get a similar product called Promite, which is made in Australia and this is my favourite now.
