Anyb recipe you might use soy sauce you could use Marmite instead. I don't mean that it tastes just like soy sauce, but it'd work in tye recipr.

And if you mix in some Marmite into mashed potato it makes the potato tastier.

You could make your own marmite - I always do!
You need some flaked yeast - I buy mine from one of those bulk food stores, called Bin Inn in New Zealand, but some of the supermarkets have it too. Don't use brewer's yeast or bread yeast, make sure it's the edible flaked variety.
Then mix it to the required cosistency with soy sauce!
There are different soy sauces too - light, dark, mushroom soy etc. Try each one and see which taste you like best. I prefer the mushroom soy - it's closer to the real marmite flavour.
It's very satisfying, mixing the two together in a wee bowl, and you can make it as thick or as runny as you wish.
Give it a try - it's very cheap that way, and of course, there are no preservatives or caramelisers or other additives either.

Marmite (Vegemite) & honey sandwich... (sarnie, buttie)

A Marmite is a heavy iron pot used to boil (simmer) a soup over a slow wood fire for a very long time. If you let it go long enough, you end up with a very thick sludge which lasts for ages, and is supposedly good for you...

Strictly speaking Vegemite is the Aussie answer to Marmite. It was allegedly going to be called "Pawill", but they decided to go with the name Vegemite.

My actual preference for taste is Promite....

The new Aussie OWNED spread is called MightyMite... :-) and the TV ad soundtrack is by a famous Aussie singer...

You can always use Bonox as a spread, but it's a bit runny.

Arnie - you can make a drink out of Marmite, but you're probably thinking of Bovril which is based on meat stock rather than yeast extract - and definitely would not be acceptable to Harlowpoet.

Incidently Kevin's song helps you to differentiate between them in a supermarket - all together now . . . . .

Naah - they stick it on the shelves next to the Jam and the Honey and the Peanut Butter, all the stuff you spread on bread, though not necessarily at the same time.

Bovril on the other hand, though you can spread it on bread, is primarily for mixing up with water to make a drink, or putting in dishes to give a meaty flavour - sort of solid gravy. As the name indicates, it's got beef in it somewhere. So has the third product, OXO, which normally comes in cubes, though you can get an OXO spread.

Useless bit of information - at one time both Bovril and Oxo use to make chocolate bars. However Marmite does not appear to have done so.

Checking up on whether that was the case, I Googled, and came up with a page that suggested that, so far as people in tye UK are concerned, American Hershey Bars are "definitely the Marmite of the chocolate world. You either love it or loathe it".

The site includes quotes such as this, from "A customer from East London":
"This is the worst excuse for chocolate I've ever tasted! The good ol' USA usually comes up tops with most things but I'm afraid chocolate is not one of them! This chocolate tastes like a mixture between smelly socks and strong cheese..."

I dream of Marmite. Whenever anyone goes back to the UK they have to bring me two big jars which last me about 6 months then I dream for the next 6 months about marmite. OXO...I have a wonderful recipe to use OXO...take one can of baked beans,a handful of peanuts ( salted) a small onion, several garlic cloves and some pepper to taste. Cut up the onion and fry lightly, then put in the crushed garlic ( to taste again) put in the can of baked beans and pepper and the peanuts, add two or three oxo cubes and a little water and cook. Great to eat on a Sunday evening with about half a loaf of buttered bread. Also wonderful for the blood pressure with all that salt.

Vert strange, Mr Red.

"You know there are two sorts of people in the world - those that divide the world into two sorts of people, and those that HATE MARMITE."

By saying "There are two sorts of people in the world" you clearly identify yourself as being one of the sort of people who "divide the world into two sorts of people".

And that means you cannot possibly be one of "those that HATE MARMITE."

But then in your later post you indicate that this is not the case...

Goes very well with any form of eggs, not just soft-boiled ones: especialy if you spread it on toast underneath scrambled or poached eggs.
My husband still eats it with strawberry jam, and will insist on putting it in the gravy which makes it far too salty ( the source/sauce of many family arguments!).
You can make it into a hot drink also as it dissolves well in boiling water: and you can now get it in cubes.
A friend who has coeliac disease tells me that either Bovril or Marmite is OK for coeliacs, but the other isn't: can't remember which is the offender, however!

Arnie, people have mentioned Bovril and Oxo (which generally comes as stock cubes) for drinks, but the one I know of is called Bonox (probably the same as Bovril).

We used to have an ad for it, where somebody used to say "Coffee, tea or Bonox?".

Some Aussie baker chain shops do a bread swirl roll which is made by spreading Vegemite on a flat sheet of dough and rolling it up then cutting slices which are baked on their sides, like some biscuits are.

Kid's fond rememberance: Soft boiled eggs with Vegemite soldiers dipped in - buttered toast with Vegemite sliced across into about 4-6 pieces...

Talking about cooking with interesting ingredients - there is a South American Recipie called "CocaCola Chicken" --- yes.... :-) A poached/stewed chicken with some Coke added... from the land that brought you Turkey with Chocolate/Chili Sauce!

The film "In Which we Serve" includes a bit where the ship is picking up troops during the Dunkirk evacuation. Cups of hot Bovril are being handed out. One of the recipients remarks on how good the Bovril tastes and is told that it's because there's a drop of sherry in it. Since then hot Bovril with sherry has been a favourite of mine - after all it's quite usual to serve a beef consomme with the stuff.

Taramasalata, peanuts and marmite on toast. Nummy.

I refer to marmite and (crunchy) peanut butter sarnies as "Duracell" sandwiches as they don't half keep you going....(energy wise, that is)

I used to know a girl whom we called Bovril, 'cos she was hot and beefy, but had no real taste ( the 'no taste' being her boyfriend....) I have to think hard to remember her real name, infact.

I too used to stick oxo cubes and onions in my baked beans, but that's as far as it went! Although the alternative was to crumble the oxo cube onto a partly toasted piece of bread, add diced onion and possibly some grated cheese and continue toasting......ooh I'm making myself hungry here, slurp.

I try and put back the jar of Marmite back onto the shelves in the supermarket as we go around the supermarket. My other half keeps trying to put it in the trolley and he always seems to notice me trying to put it back - does marmite give you eyes in the back of your head?

He hasn't noticed I've hidden the jar at home yet...

I agree with the cat crap smell comment KB. Though Flossie my feline friend also turns her nose up at Marmite! But she loves Marsh mallows - we caught her pinching one of those. Surprisingly (not) she's not fussed by Marmite...

When friends urged me to visit them in Alaska it turned out that they were using the invitation as opportunity to re-stock with Marmite. It's simply not available in the back country (nor anywhere in the States, for all I know). I duly packed 12 of the largest-size jars, and set forth.

TIP: If anyone else tries this, it would be advisable to remove a large spoonful of the precious sludge from each jar before checking your bags. I didn't, with the result that all 12 jars exploded during the flight (cargo holds being unpressurised). At least I discovered that the entire contents of a backpack are rendered unserviceable by this kind of incident.

There is also a new type of savoury biscuit/cracker in Oz which are flavoured with Vegemite. The surprising thing is not that it is available, but that no-one thought of it sooner.

For me there are only two ways to eat Vegemite.   On hot buttered toast, fairly thickly spread. And on semi-sweet biscuits like Arnott's Milk Arrowroot or Morning Coffee biscuits with a good spreading of butter. Those bikkies go well with butter and cheese too.

Amother good type of bikkie for Vege and butter is those rye crispbread ones - the one with all the tiny holes - the filling squishes out them when you bite it - there was even a TV ad showing that.

Also a favourite of mine from childhood - Weetbix/Vitabix breakfast thingies - vegemite and LOADS of soft butter - Ah, those were the days...

When we were ill as kids, we were given beef tea, made using Marmite (or OXO or Bovril or Bovo or Vegemite..... any of the above). A nice lite savoury hot drink, especially good when you can't face anything sweet.
These days I always start the day with a concoction made from 1/2 teaspoon Teaco Beef Tea (Bovril is OK but 3x the price), 1/2 teaspoon plain gelatine and when that's dissolved in 3/4 cup of hot water, throw in about 1 dessertspoonful of flaked yeast.
It keeps my old bones lubricated, gives me lots of B vitamins and sets me up for the day!

I'd like to think that it was the cheese & marmite sandwich we gave Joe that was responsible for his developing the taste, but I bet he'd already tried it.

When I am getting my appetite back after a migraine, my first food is usually toast and marmite. When I was pregnant the first time, the only thing I could fancy in the evening during the early months was marmite sandwiches and a couple of pickled onions, washed down with a drink of milk. My son hates both.

I never tried marmite until I started going out with my husband. I was reared on Bovril butties. Funny, I have only ever eaten marmite since we got married.

As for twiglets...a few years ago I hosted a French student for a couple of weeks. He couldn't even stand the thought of marmite. Funny though, once he'd eaten a twiglet he couldn't get enough of them. He wouldn't believe me when I told him what they tasted of, and he still refused to try marmite!

interesting way of applying it, but I like to put soft real butter on very hot toast, let it be absorbed, THEN put the Mar/Veg-Mite on. If it doesn't absorb fully cause it's not soft enough, then I get a blend of the two which I cream together and smear everywhere - mostly on the toast!

When I was in NZ earlier this year I found that what is called Marmite, isn't. The stuff to go for is called My Mate, and that's the proper job. Nothing else comes close.

I saw something on TV recently that said that the use of brewery yeast waste for this was started by an employee of the Bass brewery at Burton Upon Trent in the late 19th century, who, unfortunately, neglected to patent it!
It was an episode of "Cash in the Attic" and one of his descendents was selling some Bass limited edition commemoratives.
