Aah, vegemite. It is like Southwark beer. If you were raised on it, you love it. Otherwise the usual reaction is "How on earth can you eat/drink this crap?"
Remind me to post my recipe for vegemite soup.

Now as for Bundaberg rum, in South Oz we call it Queensland diesel. Also known as "fightin' gear". The fuel of choice for pub brawlers everywhere.
Nothing like a square bottle of polar bear piss to get the adrenalin pumping.
In the interests of peace and harmony, I don't drink it anymore.

I admire your courage. However, I am willing to bet you won't like it.
I often ponder these things - given that most adults who taste it for the first time sorta spit it out and say "What the heck is that?" how did anyone ever eat it long enough to acquire a taste for it?

Sorta like olives - an un-brined olive is usually bitter. Who persevered long enough to find out that if you soak it in salt water long enough the bitterness goes away and its quite tasty?

Funnily enough the company that makes vegemite is American owned.

Eat it like this:
toasted white bread, lightly buttered, then a thin smear of vegemite on top.

Then give the rest of the jar to an Aussie neighbour who may or may not thank you.


BTW, what is Fugas and piccallili?

Hmm. Beef Bullion. Yeah I reckon it could claim a slight similarity. I hope you do like it, vegemite on toast is a nice thing on a cold winter morn.

To those wishing to try vegemite, when you first start, very thin is best. It is not like peanut paste(butter). To acquire the taste basically pass the knife above the toast and say :"vegemite, vegemite, vegemite", that would probably give you enough on the toast

I use it when I make gravy. A teaspoon gives a great colour and flavour.

Vegemite and Cheese sandwiches - Yum
Vegemite and Cos lettuce sandwich-Yum

Cheers

Vegemite has a lot of other uses.
Black toilet sets favored by government bodies are best. A quick smear of vegemite around the inner edge will leave a black greasy ring on the body of the next user. It is not possible to remove Vegemite from the skin with spit and toilet paper alone.
Vegemite was included in army ration packs during WWII. It can in a small tin like a miniature sardine tin. The remaining rations were issued to school cadets during the 60s and 70s. It was always a good lark to throw a can in the fire when someone stood with thier back to the fire. It was also handy to be able to recognize the more senior officers from a distance by the black stains on thier clothing.
On an Australian warship the junior officers work towards getting thier " bridge ticket" that enabled them to take over the control of the warship without the watchfully eye of a more senior officer. On their first watch by themselves there would usually be some wag who would smear Vegemite on the black eyepiece of the officer of the watches binoculars. After one use the young officer would have a fairly distinctive "panda eye" and would spend the rest of the watch trying to figure out why no one would look him in the eye! And what was all the laughing about.
Foreign visitors are usually horrified to find out of the two most deadly spiders 6 of the most venomous live in Australian. And of the world top 6 most deadly snakes its really only the fourth most deadly the common brown that really kills the most people anyway. You explain to them that Australian have a natural protection in the form of large doses of vitamin B consumed over a lifetime of eating Vegemite. Of course that want to try some , some can eat it most can't.
It's easy you explain to them you can get the same benifit by smearing Vegemite on your skin. Makes it easy to find any lost visitors in the bush , the smell of Vegemite travels a long way!

Dave - I have read 1000 posts on FB and I reckon you deserve the prize. Most of us in Aus have grown up with this refined residue from the bottom of the brewery tanks. I have been eating this stuff for 60 years and you have informed me.

Bravo!
