View Full Version : Amazing Marmite!

And I am "Amazed"!...how anyone can ingest this! :)

After returning to the states, I prepared myself for the ultimate taste test. Of course, I had to have witnesses. I drafted my co-workers for a group participation.

I passed the jars of Marmite and Vegemite around for everyone to inspect. We decided on the Marmite since it had a darker texture and looked similar to "chocolate fudge"...
Of course opening the lid dispelled that logic. What an aroma! http://www.pprune.org/ubb/NonCGI/eek.gif

Now was the time to make the final decision to proceed. With crackers in hand, we sparingly (as ExSim, IFR and others recommended) spread this unknown substance to a transparent consistency. I made sure sparingly was reinforced. I conveyed the adamant directions from the Marmite authorities.

It was agreed on the count of three we'd simultaneously indulge. One...Two...Three. Crunch...silence...Ok so maybe it's not so bad. It was tolerable, but a bit disdain taste. Hmmm...maybe I didn't put enough on my cracker? Time to try cracker No. 2 with an added heap of Marmite. WRONG! My chair and I took a rolling spin backwards to the nearest trash receptacle. Aside from the abnormal noises coming from my person, my cohorts said they'd never seen such a contorted face! :)

Everyone turned to their PC's entering in a keyword search "Marmite". They had to know why in the world would anyone want to eat this. Amazing how many websites were found. Next thing I know we have the "Vegemite" song playing. What a happy bouncy song sung by children who seemed to enjoy their Marmite! It remained the discussion of the day and created an "All bets are on" for any passer-bys we could draft.

From time to time we take the jars down just to take a whiff. Perhaps we are trying to convince our palatal senses this really is a food source.
;)

ExSim...I will thank you for the experience, but I've yet to become a Marmite recruit. :)

PS: If it's any consolation, some have mellowed to the thought "it just might be good sparingly mixed in selected food dishes."

Mmmmmmmmmm........Marmite

Black gold.

You just have to love yeast and it’s derivatives. It goes into the bread you eat, the marmite you spread on the bread, and the beer you drink to wash it all down.

Hmmm, sounds like today's lunch actually. :)

Have a good one, Dave.

Actually Marmite is a by-product of brewing. Take a trip to Burton-on-Trent where you will find the Marmite factory next door to Bass Breweries.

Vegemite is just a watered down version of the real thing. Not surprising if its a by-product of that watered down Aussie "beer." Its eatable though and better than nothing as long as its well chilled. :)

Hey JTT,

Vegemite is the worlds richest source of Vitamin B, and yes the happy little vegemites song is still played on ads on tele.

I doubt that there would be a child in oz who did not know the words.

AS i mentioned in a previous thread, once I won $20 for eating a 250g jar of vegemite with a teaspoon in under 1 minute.

Marmite is, without exception, the finest substance on earth. The thought of hot, buttered Marmite toast is making me drool onto my desk as I type.

It is "The growing-up spread you never grow out of". Actually, there's quite a few things I've never grown out of, but this is one I'm happy to endorse on PPRuNe...

Vegemite is nearly as good, but a miss is as good as a mile I'm afraid.

Nobody's mentioned Bovril? Similar to King Marm, but runnier and slightly beefier in the author's opinion. It slides into second place pushing Vegemite down to a respectable but non-drool-making third.

Vive Le Marmite!

Judy honey,

You've got to do this right!

First you need toast. Marmite on crackers? Well, might be OK...but I think it would be a very acquired taste. Then you need butter first; marmite alone is only for the real addicts or those on very low fat diets who've given up on expecting things to taste good. Then you want it spread more thinly than you would believe possible - a teeny dab on the end of a knife to cover the whole slice. Then...bliss! Wonderful stuff; I spent five years living in the US and had to be sent care packages if Marmite if I was to survive. Bovril? Yuck, nasty beefy stuff. Vegemite? OK, but a poor substitute.

But I've tried to explain this before, and it does seem that you have to be UK born and bred to really appreciate the stuff.

Hi de hi Judy

I totally agree with Whirly and Hershy about the buttered toast. But you need to choose your bread carefully and take care in the toasting and the choice and application of the butter.

This is my favourite method:

I. Take one slice of plain white bread (not granary, wholemeal or other fancy stuff) and place under a gas or electric grill. Do not use a electric toaster or toasted sandwich maker.

2. Grill one side until crunchy and a deep golden brown.

3.Turn over slice and grill other side until lightly golden brown.

4.Remove slice from heat and apply thickish coating of butter, preferably English, although Normandy or Danish will do. Do not use margarine or soft butter spread.

5. Return buttered slice to grill and heat until butter melts and soaks into moderately golden brown toast.

6. Remove from heat and smear lightly with Marmite. Do not forget to apply Marmite up to the edges of toast.

7. Return buttered and Marmited toast to grill and heat for a further 30 seconds or so until the whole lot is sizzling.

8. Eat immediately.

9. Prepare to make more slices of same


So there we have it Jude...the perfect recipe for Marmite toast. Try it and you will be become a big fan and will order it for breakfast next time you are in a UK hotel.

PS

Many thanks again for the Wint O Green mints and Ass-Kicking paprika peanuts. I tried some of the Wintos on friends at work and none of them seemed to like them. One chap spat his out immediately and said: " Bloody hell, how on earth can you eat something with wintergreen in it? The coach used to rub wintergreen ointment on my legs when I was injured playing football."

Because wintergreen is an aromatic stimulant it is also used in horse liniment. Is that why Texans like it so much?

I have become a big fan of the mints and the peanuts since you introduced me to them at the Ash bash last year. So I reckon in time you will become a big Marmite fan too. When shall I mail the first box full?

Regards

Don't I just love Aussies? Salt of the earth party animals, but as I said in another thread I know where to kick yez so it hurts. :)

The only way to argue about Aussie v Pommy beer is to do it with an ice cold tinny of whatever is the local brew in one hand and a Marmite or Vegemite toastie in the other.

As to eating Marmite off a cracker - yeeeccchhhh!!!! Judy dear, you only eat Branston Pickle off crackers (spread on a slab of Red Leicester of course.) Get yer jar of Marmite back down off the shelf and follow Stan Sted's perfect recipe for a trip to heaven. Accompanied with either an ice cold Aussie beer or a room temperature British Bitter.

[A word of warning - whatever you do don't mix it with ANY American brew!]

PigBoat...Soylent Green? :) Excellent!

Well, this has been very informative to say the least! :) I do recall IFR mentioning the marmite should be taken on toast. I only found "toasted crackers" around our work area.

Perhaps I should prepare Marmite the proper way as Stan and Whirly suggested. At least I'd be given it's fair due.

Stan...Ha! Never thought about the wintergreen and horse liniment comparison. You're absolutely right! :)

CS...I'm quite impressed! No way can I comprehend eating a whole jar! :)
We too did read about the rich Vitamin B content we felt would be beneficial. It is getting to the proper way of ingesting it that puzzled us. :)

I think we ought to have a Marmite moment at the PPRuNe summer party, the Gatbash at Gatwick UK on June 9.

Best time would be around 3.30 am when we are still gathered round the bar and waiting to start 10W's musical sofas game.

We could try a selection of Marmite and toast accessories such as:

Marmite and cheese on toast
Marmite,cheese and bacon on toast
Marmite, mushrooms,cheese and bacon on toast
Marmite, ham, mushrooms and cheese on toast
Marmite, pastrami and cheese on toast
Marmite, chorizo sausage and cheese on toast

I have tried all the above and many other combinations. I also tried Marmite with a wonderful Bill O'Hagan Caribbean banger, but have to admit the banger was better Bill's way.

Judy, I think I might be tempted to try the ultimate: A Marmite toastie with Winto O Greens and Ass kicking peanuts.

Although I have written in this forum about my fondness for Marmite, I do have to admit that I prefer the more sophisticated taste of Patum Peperium, the wonderful Gentleman's relish, made exclusively at Elsenham, a mere stone's throw from good old Stansted, Essex, UK.

This delicious paste made from a blend of anchovies, butter and exotic herbs and spices was invented in 1828 and has drawn a dedicated band of enthusiasts ever since.

It is absolutely sensational on hot buttered toast and unlike Marmite, can be heaped on an inch without the taste overpowering the palate.

Vegemite consumption:
Breakfast - nice thick, light to mediumly toasted white bread, a generous (not copious) smearing of butter (real butter!), closely followed by a similar quantity of Vegemite. (if u can handle it)
Lunch - White bread with a very light spread of butter followed by Vegemite then some thickly sliced Coon! OH YEAH! (Coon is cheese - for the novices - perhaps chedder, but REAL chedder, not this "cheese" they call chedder in the 'states, which is in fact just chemically altered lard.)
Marmite consumption: Feed to dog. (even this may be a little cruel.

All this nonsense about Aussie beers!! They are lager-type brews (bottom fermenting), heated (pasteurised) then mixed with chemicals to preserve the flavour and give an artificial head. They are served ice cold, so how much variation in flavour can you possibly get?

Contrast that with a traditional English ale. Top fermenting and live. Nothing artificial and the only additives to the cask are ‘finings’ to help the beer to clear and stay fresh. There are hundreds of different regional brews – each with its own distinctive flavour thanks to the Master Brewer’s art of blending hops, malt and local water.

So, what’s it to be – natural beer or chemical engineering? Well, I’ve been known to sup a pint of lager on a hot summer’s day but the true joy to the palate is a good pint of ale. Light, hoppy and refreshing for a summer evening session, dark malty and strong for a cold winter’s night. Ahhhhh :)

Pretty much the same goes for the Marmite debate. Vegemite is just a pale imitation engineered to suit the bland Antipodean palate..... http://www.pprune.org/ubb/NonCGI/tongue.gif

Personally I love marmite but I have a word of warning for all marmite addicted persons out there. My friend and her boyfriend both thought marmite was on a par with ambrosia. One evening, finding they had run out of chocolate mousse decided to substitute marmite as part of their sexual activities. Let's just say that they didn't repeat the experience. So if anyone else thinks this is a good idea, you have been warned.

I think you really need to be brought up on it. In England, one of the first solid foods you start on is marmite on toast, and I guess you just grow up loving it.

Personally I couldn't live without the stuff. Being a new resident of Texas, I'm shocked by the price they charge in the specialty shops, it works out as about five quid for a tiny jar. Just as well we brought half a dozen catering tubs of it with us, together with a few thousand pg tips tea bags.

As the advert states, you either love it or hate it. i've never met anyone who was halfway on this.

Oh and kudos to marmite for one of the best adverts of the last few years. The brits will know the one i mean, about the stunning girl who takes the guy back for coffee and has a marmite crumpet. Priceless.

Judy and Baggy, I wondered if anyone would bring (throw?)up the common element in Marmite and Peanut Butter. I agree with Judy on the Marmite, only more so. Unspeakable. As to the Peanut butter, a kindly, I think, American gave us a whole jar of the stuff during the War. One tiny taste was enough. We spent the rest of the hostilities looking for another to whom we could give it. We eventually did, and he appeared grateful, as we pooh-poohed our sacrifice in parting with it.

I might have to agree with the points made about growing up on Marmite.

In our house, (well I say house, but those who were there know what I mean) in the industrial wastelands of South Durham we had porrage for breakfast, bread and dripping for dinner (dripping if we were lucky, mind) and old newspapers for tea. (There's none of that lunch nonsense north of the Ouse!) We needed the Marmite to give the newspapers a bit of flavour.

I remember once one of the toffs from the Redcoat School letting me smell his fish and chips, which was quite pleasant (the likes of us is beholden to the likes of he) but there's still nothing like a bit of Daily Herald and Marmite. If it weren't for those pints of Federation we'd all be dead. (Vaux is OK as well mind, but that Newcastle breweries muck? Pure weasel's piss!)

Now I know someone's bound to say that were luxury. But if they do, then they're damned right! :)

Ah!!!! Vegemite, dont eat it much these days but it goes well on fresh bread buttered with a thin slice of tasty cheese.

When spread on a rusk (hard round bread stick, about the thickness of a finger), is a great pacifier for a teething Rug Rat.

Crunchy peanut butter is great as well ( but sticks to the roof of the mouth if spread too thick). The Dick Smith brand peanut butter is realy good, cant wait to try the Aussie mite if it ever get produced..

MARMITE --- YESSSSSSS.

I must just add that my favourite method of partaking of the black ambrosia is to toast a crumpet under a VERY hot grill, spread lashings of real butter on it, follow that with MASSES (not piddly "scrapes" like you wusses are advocating) of Marmite, spread some grated extra mature cheddar on top of this and return to the VERY hot grill until cheese is golden brown. Remove from the grill and start to experience the ultimate delight in culinary perfection!

Incidentally, when I was a kid, my sister bet me 1 (a lot of money then), that I wouldn't eat a thick slab of marzipan spread with a liberal dose of Marmite --- she lost!!!

Wasn't THAT bad actually ---- well, perhaps it was ! :)

Yes, Marmite is definitely on of Britain's greatest inventions. And yes it must be eaten with lashings of butter.

But how about another great British invention - Worcester Sauce?

I remember reading somewhere that a supply had been found in some abandoned mining settlement in the US which had been there since the 1870s. And the amazing thing was that it had matured with age like a fine wine. I've been meaning to lay some down like vintage port to see if the ageing works, but always seem to use it up in the mean time.

But surely the best bit about Marmite is the fact that when you get towards the end of the jar, a large part under the rim becomes inaccesible to knife or spoon, and the ONLY decent thing to do is get your finger in there, spin it round, haul it out and lick the huge lump off in one go – nectar!

Beaten only of course by eating whole oxo cubes, - FANTASTIC!

Although several connections have been made between marmite and peanut butter I'm amazed nobody else seems to have put them together.
The link with beer has been well established so I have to confess my favourite midnight post-pub snack is crumpets toasted until properly crispy then smothered with butter,marmite and crunchy peanut butter.
This perfect combination is the only thing that can relegate curried chips into second place.

Marmite is quite simply "the food of the gods".

You'll find it almost impossible to convince the Worlds lost souls.

There is hope for Judy TT though. A slim one, but still hope.

However I'm afraid any race that eats peanutbutter with jam, has serious culinary problems.

If you're not that brave, you could always try jello.(Ughh)

If that fails to take your fancy, how about a few grits with your brekkie. (Mmm nothing better than last nights regurgitated semolina)

All this typing has made me peckish, so it's off to the toaster for me... now where's the Marmite.


P.S vegemite tastes rank, like eating Flora Ughhhh.

:) !!10W...now that sums it all up.

BTW, on our first attempt to eat the Marmite, we used toasted crackers that had peanut butter on them. We scraped the peanut butter off. Perhaps we should have left it on.

Ha!...and to think we thought it would spoil the taste. ;)
