Vegemite is Australian brewer's scrap.
Like all things Australian, it is out to kill you.

It's OK.  Not that I would eat any on toast, but a little bit in a stew of sauce works well. So do lots of things.

Boveral  is a little better. It's made from beef scrap. Yum ( liquid beef, its original name), spinal cord paste. Thanks Canada (invented by a Scott) .

Then there is Marmite.  It's a combination of the two with  multi vitamins and enough salt to turn Lot's wife to stone mid step.

It's an acquired  taste.

The modern equivalent might be warmed up better than Bouillon spread on toast.
Just NO.

Marmite has nothing to do with Bovril. For one Marmite is vegetarian, no beef or animal product at all.

Bovril is a drink. Marmite is a paste you put on toast. Both are yummy.

My dad was raised on it and loves it.  I was not, and can't stomach it.

I like it on a saltine with a cold beer on a hot day. Spread it thin!

What's odd is that I have a jar of Vegemite less than 12 inches away from me right now.
I used it with 'water crackers' earlier in the day.

si. i know (of the exact moment of the vid the line is sung!).

but just seeing that pic made the song get stuck in my head. and they say the best cure for an earworm is to listen to the entire piece from start to finish. and i also like the song.

so, now the vid. for any other farkers left in the lurch by your pic (like me). 😉

Have a jar in the fridge. Love the stuff, in moderation

I have a jar in my fridge,  Bought the day after Inauguration day.  Barack Obama's inauguration.  His first inauguration.

I prefer Marmite but Vegemite is great too. Old cheddar, Vegemite, butter on multigrain toast, fark yeah...

...I'm hungry, gonna make that right now

My daughters (4&8) and I eat Vegemite toast almost every morning for breakfast. The 4yo asks for it as a snack 3-5 days a week. Thinking I should take some pics tomorrow and send them in.

If you like tomatoes, vegemite and tomato on toast in the morning is just excellent. Nice thin raw slices, maybe a dash of pepper. Yum

You don't need to store it in the fridge. Vegemite survives for ages in the cupboard.  (Lots of salt as a preservative) I have it in toast nearly every morning for breakfast.  One happy,not so little, Vegemite.

Got a couple of jars in the cabinet. Good with PB in a sandwich and on crackers.
Not an Aussie, but spent time there as a kida na developed a taste for it. Hard to find in the US, but my Aussie friends know what to bring.

I love Vegemite. Much easier to spread than Marmite, and a subtler taste.

It was on my admittingly odd bucket list. Enjoyed it. Would not eat again.

starting to run low on Branston Pickle, here. I've always wished there was something like it that had much less sugar and was closer to Marmite or Vegemite.

I suppose I could attempt a mixture and see how is unholy babby formed?

/experiment would offer excuse to buy their "new" Small Chunk version, maybe

Yuuuup! Except I do that version as a sandwich for lunch with fresh tomatoes from the garden. Thick slice of beefsteak, a little black pepper, and sometimes a dash of Cholula hot sauce.

I'm baking bread today, I have Marmite on hand, and the farm stand down the road has ripe tomatoes.

My mission is clear.

We lived in Australia in the 1965-66, and I was the only one in the family that would eat Vegemite.  They all ate rhubarb so we'll call it even.

In the USA, Jif is a brand of peanut butter. Over in Australia, that name has been used for a powder cleanser. The first time I ever tasted Vegemite was in 1989 in California when my dear friend visiting from Melbourne offered me some. I thought it tasted great, and I told my Aussie mate that I thought it would taste fantastic with Jif and I walked over to the kitchen sink. He was looking at me aghast and saying things like What On Earth Is Wrong With You and I had no idea what he was on about -- then I took the peanut butter jar out of the cupboard above the sink, and he saw the brand name and he clutched his chest and started laughing. When he caught his breath, he explained what had gotten lost in translation.

Briefly dated an Aussie. She said "put some vegemite on good bread with some good cheese, and you've got a meal."

/really, you've got a good meal with just bread and cheese...
// but under those cirumstances, vegemite was dynamite
///might have been the girl who was dynamite, more research is needed to prove this

Just smelling Vegemite gives you your daily requirement for sodium.

You don't keep it in the fridge, that's mental.

Had some for the first time when I went to Australia last year. I brought some back for co-workers they did not like it as much as I did. Would eat again
