Thanks for that, Andy. I had NO idea what everyone was talking about. Now, of course, I'm curious to try some!

I am imagining the same sort of consistency and saltiness of "Better than Boullion". With more of a yeasty, hopsy flavor.

Am I close?

I thought beef tea was made with Bovril?

At least the Bovril people think so.

Bovril is a little more liquid than Marmite, Jennyema... But both can be used. The two companies are rivals - and lots of people use bovril on toast, simply cos it does spread more easily. But Marmite is best for toast!

I like Vegemite, Marmite and Bovril !! But I used to suck on boullion cubes as a kid.

I would think you'd use a beef product for beef tea?

Jen - I think when beef tea was first mentioned it had quotes around it - so it was the same technique process to make it but using this stuff instead of Bovril. The quotation marks were key in this instance. You thinkin' like an attorney again????

I did the same thing as a kid.......haven't tried Marmite, Vegemite, Promite or Bovril but I think I might give it a go someday. Now to find a way to smuggle in some of all so that I can do a taste test!!!

Not really. Just hadn't heard of making "beef tea" with Marmite. That's sort of like tea and toast all in one!

Beef tea AKA Hot OXO, great with a little black pepper and some toast to dip in it :)

Vegamite, Marmite, bovril etc, I love em all, except I put Loads on toast or crumpets and Then I put the butter on, that way you get more of it :)

I`ve even done crushed OXO cubes on toast before now.
and since I`m suposed to be on a Gout diet, it`s something I certainly "forget" to tell my doctor about

So... what does that stuff taste like?
It looks kinda nasty.
Is it close to jam.. or is it actually jam.

it`s Like marmite, but it`s coarser, like it has granular bits in it, it`s also much harder to spread than marmite.
tastewise it`s lovely :)

BTW, isn`t Folic acid extremely good for you also? in fact here in the UK, all pregnant women are Given this to take during pregnancy. I don`t see what the big deal is in all honesty????.
