I quite like it but it isn't something that I make a point of buying mainly as I am the only one who quite likes it. Marmite is great added to stews or gravies but it isn't something that is necessary, I can live without it.

Well, I got some online. My first taste of it was less than wonderful. Perhaps it is an acquired taste. I will give it a few more taste attempts before I make a final decision. But for right now, it looks like it will not occupy a permanent place in my food cabinet.

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.

Since my earlier post here I've changed my breakfast drink from Teaco beef tea to Promite which seems to work better - dissolves easier and it's slightly cheaper. The flavour is still about the same.
Now my grandaughter is hooked on 'Marmite' sandwiches for lunch - using my homemade Marmite, of course.

If you read the beginning of this thread you'll find I've given the recipe - on 21 Oct last year!
You use flaked yeast - the edible stuff, not the brewer's stuff or the breadmaker's type. And mix it with soy sauce. And that's all - no preservatives, no caramelisers or artificial additives. Only whatever is in yeast and soy sauce.

I've mentioned it before, and I don't know if it's still in print, but there is a Marmite cookery book called "My Mate Marmite In The Kitchen" - By Rosemary Moon, published 1992 by Good Books. ISBN 0 946555 24 9 (softback) and 0 946555 25 7 (hardback). It was a charity fundraiser for the NSPCC.

It also says for more information on Marmite Yeast Extract, contact CPC (UK) Ltd, Esher, Surrey KT10 9PN.

does any one know of a way to find out how marmite is made?
I have grown quite fond of it after having gotten some from
myu secret santa. There is a brewery near here, and I hear
that some Marmite factories are right across the streen form
breweries as the by-products of beer making are the ingredients
for Marmite. I have requested Sorcha to search out the recipe
on her UK adventure tour. Is it possible to locate the recipe?
I understand most of what it contains is yeast from beer vats.
I have a dream of manufacturing it here! If it is lo-carb it
might get popular by all the atkins diet people..

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!

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!

I'm trying to think of the brand name for the Vegemite flavoured bikkies - One type is by Lane's and the other is Arnotts and they look similar, in similar sized packs with different background colours according to flavour. Obviously the main box colour for the Vegemite ones is yellow with black and red writing.

Oh yes: Arnotts Shapes, but I think it is the other brand.

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!

Robin, those were Vita Weat. My kids used to like squeezing them to make vegemite "worms" come out of the holes.

Some time back, you could get vegemite flavoured cheese slices, but I haven't seen them for a while, so maybe they didn't sell too well.

I find if I'm recovering from any kind of stomach upset, the first thing I feel like having is vegemite toast - with a nice hot cup of tea, of course.

thoise are two of my favourite ways of bikkies & Vegemite, - don;t forget SAO bikkies - there is a song about
"Can you fit a Sao,
all in your mouth in one go?"

Aussies have had prepak Snack Packs with bikkies and Vegemite for some time now...

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...

My computer-geek hubby says: "There are 10 types of people in the world: those who understand binary, and those who don't."

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.
