Re: Going Veggie

The only thing I know about Vegemite is from the Men at Work song. To be honest, I cannot sort the fake articles from the real ones regarding Vegemite.

teacake, would you explain it to me (or someone else with a serious answer)? What is it made of, does it taste similar to anything else, etc.? I have never seen any in this area, or I'd have tried it at least once.

Re: Going Veggie

It tastes similar to the two Marmites, to Promite and to varying other wannabe mites.. which doesn't help if you are miteless. It's a savoury spread which in itself is a stumbling block for some who are used to putting sweet spreads on their toast. It's made from yeast extract but the closest I could say it tastes is a paste made of beef stock cubes, though it doesn't taste beefy and it it is vegetarian. But that's the kind of taste it is. Newbies should spread it THINLY (so you can see through it) on buttered toast. It is excellent on rye toast but that's my preference. Have some nice buttered toast with thin vegemite spread on it and a cup of tea.. you won't get any sugar hit/drop from eating too sweet jam or peanut butter, the savoury aspect will be very satisfying.

It is also traditionally eaten with cheese on a sandwich, usually not toasted. People put it in marinades too, but toast or with cheese is the daily life of the stuff. I like to slather it on in thickly but roughly so there will be streaks of it on the toast, and I like to let the toast cool off slightly so that the butter doesn't sink in but is still somewhat solid and visible.. yes I have given this way too much thought. Most people have quite specific preferences for how they eat it, spreading to the corners or butter completely melted etc..

I've tried all the mites and I like them all. The Marmite factory in New Zealand was destroyed in the earthquake and they are just now announcing they are ready to start production again, at one point NZ Marmite was 80.00 a jar on ebay (it's different from UK Marmite).

If anyone wants to try Vegemite I will send them a couple hotel peel back single serves if they send me a mailing address.

This is for you tsq because you were talking about prawns. I had this idea last week and just now put it together.

Green pepper sauteed briefly in minced garlic and sliced chillies, then with prawns and papaya added. Squirt of lime.



Preparation time under ten minutes. IT IS DELICIOUS.

The warmed papaya and prawn juice and chillie and garlic and papaya juice and.. well, it's good.

I think I've decided papaya is my favorite fruit.

The bottom of the bowl is a melange of juice..
That looks wonderful!

Actually, how about an international food swap? I got some New England specialties I don't feel like moving, all canned, unopen, non-perishable stuff.

PM me.

I want to try Vegemite! Do you want something New York-ish in exchange? I can't think of anything that would ship well...

Re: Going Veggie

I don't want anything in exchange, I have either tried or can buy most stuff myself and the really interesting stuff would never get through quarantine here LOL! I can slip some single serves into an envelope so it's really no trouble if anyone wants some

^Relayer1, vegetarian is a very loose term. People use it to describe everything from totally vegan (no animal products at all) to I'll-eat-anything-except-the-meat-of-land-animals. So, yes, some people who call themselves vegetarian do eat shellfish.
