MARMITE VEGEMITE PROMITE
Some overseas bloggers have enquired about the taste of Vegemite. I don't know how to explain it. It is savoury and salty and after that, I can't explain it. It is a breakfast staple in most Australian households. In fact, if you have a front door on your house, chances are you have Vegemite in the cupboard! Lol! I would equate it to Maple Syrup being the staple of most Canadian households.
Marmite is the British equivalent of Vegemite, I can't say I have ever tried it.
Promite is a vegetable & yeast extract which is sweeter and has a softer, more spreadable texture. I dislike it! Angus prefers it over Vegemite, therefore we have both.
Now I need to come clean - I have consumed the entire jar of "Name me" Cheese Vegemite and....it wasn't too bad at all. It was nice on fresh bread and I finished it off this morning on hot toast. It is more fattening than Vegemite so for that reason I will not buy it regularly but as a treat/something different for a change.
Other things we put on our toast in the morning are:
jams, marmalade, fish paste (Anchovette), Chicken & Ham paste (ha ha - made from pork hearts and tongues - if you care to read the label!), ham, cheese & mustard, tomato chutney, honey, golden syrup. We're a funny lot,us Aussies!
