I can eat anchovies out of the can. I don't know if I'd like Marmite slathered on bread or not. I can for sure see it being used as a something that enhances the flavor of stews or roasts. Kenji uses it combination with other umami containing things like tomatoes, soy sauce, and capers. I will look for it next time I'm at my local grocery store. If they don't have it I will order it on line. It doesn't cost much.

Kayelle, that would be so much fun to do! Kind of like the Traveling Apron...until it all went south. I wasn't around during its hey-day, but I have seen the thread about it. At least with a traveling jar of Marmite it wouldn't have to be moved along once the jar was empty. I'm also pretty sure I'd like to have my name far enough down the list so that the jar would be empty before it arrived.

Maybe declare an official "Marmite Day" here on DC? Anyone who wants to taste it would need to buy their own jar, but everyone could try it on the same day. Then, if you sampled, you could post a photo in the Marmite Day thread with your reaction on your first taste. If you don't want to post a photo, give a review. Even though I'm pretty sure it would be way above my salty tolerance, I might give it a go knowing I could add it in small portions to things like stews and soups to up the "yum" factor...

I'll buy the Vegemite and start the ball rolling if we get enough takers. I already have a few addresses of folks...of course, if you don't like the stuff you might ban any future shipments from me and never trust me again. The stuff is truly an acquired taste.

Kayelle, I'll trade Vegemite for Meyer Lemons...
