Anyone like Vegemite? Login/Join

After years of being curious, I ordered a bottle of Vegemite from Amazon.

I made some toast, buttered it up and spread a little Vegemite on it. You use less Vegemite than butter.

I can see the appeal. It is VERY strongly flavored. It is salty and very savory and umami.

I don't think I will love it the way an Australian who has eaten in from birth loves it, but it is good. People like it on avocado toast, and I can see that.

Live and learn.

Did it ship from a slightly confused, well built guy from Belgium?

The closest I've ever come to Vegemite is a song by Men at Work.

It's okay, but definitely in small amounts.

I enjoy it on toast.

However, it's even better when you add it to beef stews and soups.

That makes complete sense - it would punch up any savory, meaty dish.

THIS

I use it mainly to punch-up my Bolognese Sauce. Anchovies, chicken livers, marmite/vegimite, fish sauce and soy sauce, all are umami bombs you can use to pump-up your dish and give some depth.

What timing! I had Vegemite on my toast for the first time in a year or so today. A friend brought some from Australia last time she visited, and every once in a while I get the urge...

My wife likes Marmite. I suppose I should try it some time, rather than going to my grave believing it's hideous just because "people say..."

If that doesn't kill me, maybe I'll give vegemite a go someday.

Many years ago my ex and I were on a snorkeling tour boat on the Great Barrier Reef. They had snacks on deck and I grabbed a roll and spread on what I thought was some kind of chocolate sauce. Seemed odd, but whatever. You can imagine my salty surprise!!! Blech! Big Grin

Tried it once in the Red Center at the base of Kata-Tjuta. I figure if I was going to like it, I would like it there.

I didn’t.

Never tried it or Marmite. I'd try them both, though. I've added anchovy paste to stews and sauces for the flavor, but neither of these.

I used to live in Australia, where the vegemite sandwich is a staple. Buttered bread, with the vegemite spread on the butter. I didn't like it then, don't like it now. Marmite, either.

It's an acquired taste that I never acquired.
