OK, here's one for you. What in the heck is Vegemite?
It's supposed to be an extract of yeast and is wonderful on bread and/or toast. What does it taste like? Can you cook with it. Australians eat it like butter, but WHAT is it?
Vegemite is made from "pure vegetable extract" and "brewers yeast." Kraft makes it for distribution in Australia. You can read about the history of this spread from its beginnings in the 20s and use with soldiers in WWII here:
I've tasted it once on a whole slice of American cheese with about an 1/8th teaspoon of vegemite. Eh! lol The friend who sent it to me from Australia said it was an acquired taste, and they eat it there like peanut butter. I'll pass. lol But they're big fans in Oz, and they have it to start their day with breakfast. It's said to put a rosy touch to the cheeks of children.
