dlowan : i might be able to buy it right here in kingston. we have quite an interesting grocery/specialty store that has an enormous variety of colonial/international foods(cook's on brock street). but what i'm concerned about, what do i do with it once i have it? (we had nutella as kids in germany; i wonder if i would still eat it). hbg

Hmmm - well, I would buy the weeniest jar you could find.

I would take it home. I would either put a tiny scraping of it on hot, buttered toast, and see if you like it - more on if you do - OR - do you have little whole grain biscuits over there, with little holes? - wecall them "vitaweets" - you put butter on these, then vegemite - make a sandwich of two of them - squeeze them together until the butter and vegemite make little worms through the holes - then consume.

perhaps RYVITA might also work? i usually have some crispbread once or twice a week; recently i purchased a packet of the enormous round(about the size of a millstone) swedish crispbread again. i usually have some butter and good strong cheese with it. i find it's also good as a sort of cure for a "tummy upset" - if i have indulged in too much rich food - rye crispbread and good oldfashioned porridge will usually "fix me up again". and i can start the whole cycle over again..... oh, food, glorious food...... hbg

A good friend of mine is being sent to Toronto for his sins - he must have done something just terrible!

We had his send off party on the weekend, but the clown hasn't gone yet! I'm sure he'll have a supply of Vegemite (he's a German-Australian, but we must have taught him something Confused ) Perhaps he'll share! (although he works for Nestle, so they mightn't allow him to export such things at company expense!)

I like eating Tiger Toast.
Toast one side of bread under grill
Turn over, butter and spread vegemite on toast, then place strips of cheese on toast and put under grill.

I first took a liking to Vegemite almost as soon as I arrived from England. It is oh so yummy, Australian and special.

@NettieK,
G'day NettieK and welcome to A2K - and the Vegemite Appreciation Society

This is an old thread, but any visitors are welcome.

I'm heading to UK this week, and have stocked up on Vegemite for the stray expatriate Aussies I'll be catching up with.

I said it once, I'll say it again:

Vegemite: n.[ vej'-uh mite ]
An Australian condiment, reddish brown to almost black in color and of a consistency similar to peanut butter.
Vegemite is made from pulverized celery, onion and termites mixed with salt and various spices. Gaining in popularity is a newer version which substitutes pulverized cockroaches for the termites.
Australians are perplexed that their favorite condiment has never gained favor outside that country.

Hi y'all! :-)

@jjorge,
So, are we going to see more of you, jjorge?
We are thirsty, no desperate (!) for your poetic offerings!
How about some more? Smile

(Please excuse this tiny digression, Vegemite lovers.)

@msolga,
"So, are we going to see more of you, jjorge?"

Yes. I can't be a heavy user but I'll be here more often
[I know I've said that before... but...]

"We are thirsty, no desperate (!) for your poetic offerings!"
How about some more?
[I am, at once, touched by your kind words and dismayed at your poor taste! ;-)

[my apologies too, for the off-topic digression ]

@msolga,
As a child I was told by my grandfather that Vegemite was 'discovered' by workers at a brewery who were cleaning out the yeast sediment from the beer vats, readying them for the next batch. Licking the stuff off their fingers as they worked soon had them hooked and they brought jars to work to collect it. When the brewers found out, they decided to cash in on the discovery.

(Oops! That's not quite right, it should read...) When the brewers found out, they decided to dedicate their lives to the service of humanity by making it available for the betterment of the general public and the development of strong, healthy bones and rosy cheeks in children.
