I totally forgot about my overseas blogging buddies who are unfortunate enough not to have Marmite so I thought I would add this description, From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia , and a pic.
"Marmite is the name given to two similar food spreads, a British version produced in the UK and South Africa and the other in New Zealand. Marmite is made from yeast extract, a by-product of beer brewing, and is suitable for vegetarians and vegans. The British version of the product is a sticky, dark brown paste with a distinctive, powerful flavour, which is extremely salty and savoury with umami qualities, somewhat comparable to soy sauce. This distinctive taste is reflected in the British company's marketing slogan: "Love it or hate it." It is similar to the Australian Vegemite and Swiss Cenovis. The image on the front of the British jar shows a "marmite", a French term for a large, covered earthenware or metal cooking pot"
What you can do with Marmite?
The most common use is as a spread on toast or in sandwiches. It is also delicious spread on hot buttered crumpets or ryvita crackers.A lot of people have it on buttered toast. .A teaspoon of Marmite can also be added to soups, casseroles, and almost any savory food for a wonderful, rich flavoring. You can also have a spoon full in hot water to make a super meaty drink!
