there have been other discussions on this and vegemite

maybe sort of a waste product as the brewery
pays to have the stuff hauled away
lots of b vitamins

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."

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!

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.
