We had a big party on December 24th, and somebody snuck into the kitchen and abandoned a jar of pickled onions and a jar of Marmite.

What do I do with these things?

{We don't drink cocktails, so don't suggest making Gibsons.)

OK. Go with this: Put the pickles and Marmite in a blender with some grape juice and cloves. At the last instant of blending as the blade is slowing down, add just a dab of sour cream. Use as a dip with chips (crisps) for those people who drop by unannounced.

You could "donate" (leave them under the bar) them to a pal who enjoys whipping up cocktails at their home. Come to think of it, if you reflect upon who was at your party & whom amongst your guests has a stocked bar at their home, you may be able to figure out who the culprit was & leave it on their doorstep.

I suspect two culprits. I know it's unlikely to find two people at the same place surruptitiously unloading unwanted gastronomic delights, but not as unlikely, methinks, as a single such person bringing those two particular items to unload.

If I was you, I'd take a long hard look at the kind of people I was letting into my house. I know it was Christmas and all, but look at the state of your kitchen.

Are they opened? Do they have long term expiry dates on them? Donate them to a harvest festival in September if they don't run out til 2007..... there is NOTHING you can do with pickled onions and/or marmite that wouldn't seriously jepoardise your chances of ever kissing anyone ever again (unless they like eating pickled onions and/or marmite, in which case, why would you want to kiss them?).

Recipe;
Take the marmite, add two tablespoons of red wine (Burgundy works best). Add chopped shallots, garlic and a few rosemary leaves. Place in a heavy pan and simmer until the liquid is reduced by half. Add slices pickled onions and simmer until tender. Blend to a smooth paste. Make a bread crouton by dipping a slice of focaccia bread in extra virgin olive oil, and roasting gently until golden brown. Spread the marmite/onion paste on the crouton, and then



























Throw the whole mess away!

Add a couple of slices of crusty bread well buttered and a hunk of 'bite yer bum' strong cheddar. Spread said Marmite on the bread, add a bit of the aforementioned cheese, eat resulting gastronic delight, interspersed with pickled onions delicately speared with a cocktail stick (a good game on its own!)
Wash this down with a tankard or two of best scrumpy, and you will have achieved nirvana.
Sleep alone for the next couple of nights.

Guest Topsie; If you have to ask, you're not a true marmite aficionado! Seriously; my wife works in the brewing industry (rotten job, but someone has to do it! When she brings work home, I feel strangly compelled to help her with it...)She reckons that no-one in the brewery eats marmite, because it's made from the waste yeast produced in the brewing process. It sort of disappears down a chute into a skip, where it is picked up by mysterious and strange smelling lorries...

That's right about keeping the doors locked and being careful who comes to parties. If marmite appears, can a didgeridoo be far behind?

I don't believe I know anybody with a bar. In keeping with general trends, our gang drinks less and less all the time. When we do drink, it's beer or wine. I'm happy to say that traffic deaths are significantly down (since the 1980's) because of this trend.

(Not that I'm particularly virtuous - I just never cared for the taste of the stuff.)

Marmite is a UK brand, while Vegemite is Australian. Fans of either deprecate the other. For myself I find that Marmite has more bite while Vegemite is a little bland but no doubt Australians will say that Marmite is much too coarse.

I use a teaspoonfull stirred into the likes of meat when cooking a cottage pie, (or veggie alternative with soya), or casseroles/soups etc. It gives an extra bit of taste without being too strong, but then I love Marmite & can eat it straight off the spoon!! Come to that a nice piece of cheese & some good wholemeal bread would go well with either item. Yummmmmm

Marmite (as has been explained before) is made from left over beer makings (yeast, malt and such) whilst Veg-e-mite is made from boiled down vegetables and herbs - kinda like a bouillion, but with muscles.....

I find Veg-e-mite to be the blander of the two, but that may be because it doesn't have the same artery hardening level of salt in it.......

Yes Parker and I have a fully stocked bar. It gives Parker a hobby and keeps us off the streets. We make sure that there are no drink driving accidents in our street by not being able to drive in the first place...... :)

Use one part marmite to two parts honey as a glaze when roasting pork or gammon. Tastes great.
Also if you are a fan of roasted vegetables, get the pickled onions in there too. Roasting seems to kill the vinegar but brings out the natural sugars. They taste great just as they begin to caramelize

.................
Vegemite and Marmite. Maybe it's that people in England are inclined to be a bit too bland in the first place, so they need the extra oomph in Marmite, whereas for the Australians it's the other way round, and the relatively bland Vegemite is nature's way of balancing things up...

Thanks, LL. I'm going to try it.

By the way, I thought that the cocktail called A Gibson used a pickled onion, so I tried looking up the formula for Gibsons. Didn't find it, but I did learn that a Gibson or Gipsen is a person from mountain areas of Virginia,Kentucky and Tennessee of mixed white, African and Indian blood.

I think I will start a rumor that "Black is the color of my true love's hair" was an ancient pagan Gibson tune.

Throw them both away: Pickled onions should be big, brown and vinegary, not small, translucent and sweet. Marmite should be exported to Australia to show them that Vegimite does have competition as the worst 'food' ever invented!

All the above may have been in vain!

On the Marmite jar it says:

11/04 4EC 12:50

Below that line is tiny print that says "best before end" and an arrow. The arrow points at the "2".

Apparently the Marmite should be eaten before 12:50. am or pm?

Or does this mean that the jar expired in November, 2004?

The pickled onions don't even have an expiration date. Perhaps they are virtually immutable and should be shot into outer space in an attempt to show other life forms what earth is like.

Frankly it is a load of large spherical objects. I eat loads of marmite and in mosquito areas (Hungary, S. Spain) I still get bit. (Non-malarial mosquitoes of course).

Maybe it might work in conjunction with pickled onions. I just don't fancy trying it.
