Smoke infused I suppose - makes sense.

I've never really understood the Vegemite hate thing, to me it's an evolution of the Marmite that I grew up on in the UK - it's better, smoother, a tad more subtle, and, in moderation delicious.

You really do not eat spoonfuls, as Bent was told, smear it on a piece of buttered toast, or indeed, very much indeed a light smear on a roast and definitely in gravies and injections.

We go through a large jar a year, about half for cooking the other half is a mix of toast and the kids visiting, they all four of them love Vegemite sandwiches :)

My theory is that those who have a problem with it probably don't like liquorice either, as in it's black, can't be good for you :) (Liquorice actually unless refined is really, really bad for you but Vegemite is not :) )

Eh, some people do not like caviar, good, more for me :)

Cheers

Edit:

No idea if this is whole truth, comes from ThinkGeek, usually pretty reliable:

"Vegemite, like its English predecessor Marmite, is a savory spread beloved in the countries of Australia, New Zealand, and in the How-To Geek kitchen as well. The spread itself is something of a bit of culinary and entrepreneurial genius as it is primarily composed of the waste product of beer brewing: the spent brewer’s yeast. If there’s anything more clever and entirely Australian than producing millions of gallons of beer and turning right around and producing millions of jars of delicious spread with the leftovers, we don’t know what.

Between its introduction in 1922 and today, the Vegemite recipe has remained almost completely unchanged. The Vegemite manufacturing facility in Port Melbourne produces 22 million jars a year; the 1 billionth jar rolled off the processing line in 2008.

In addition to being a practical use of a waste product, it’s also the world’s most Vitamin B dense food with an enormous amount of thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, and folic acid in each serving."

Mind you - Geeks can have rather strange food preferences :)

When I 1st joined this Forum in 2009, someone suggested I try it spread lightly on buttered toast...I was hooked...really do wish I could source it. In Pasadena it was just a drive to the World Market about 5 miles...here, I don't even know where to look!

Personally, I can't stand Vegemite. However, I quite like marmite chicken. Basically, it's deep fried chicken pieces in a marmite based sauce.

Guys, I appreciate the gesture and the kindness, but it just cost to much to ship...I will find it, as I have just been to lazy to really look hard yet.

Edit: I just found a Cost Plus in Fredericksburg, which is only 25 miles away! $9 for 220g seems about twice as much as I paid in Pasadena...but oh well!

Thanks again guys for the friendship!

Toast and Vegemite is tops and I have Vegemite rolls for lunch most days. The younger generation at work don't understand. :)

i love vegemite! both as a condiment and an ingredient in cooking!

my cheese and vegemite stuffed burgers are probably the most popular thing i've made for people


will probably end up trying that vegemite choc at some point but don't hold high hopes for it

You can't be serious Chris :shock: Love me pumpkin...grew up on it and still one of my fave veggies...especially baked.

Love butternut too but I know it's referred to as a squash which I quite like too...especially steamed but like my butternut as grilled slices.

The mashed potato and pumpkin thing was something that mum made once when i had some teeth extracted as a kid and she mixed some vegemite in it and I've loved it ever since :lol:
