One of my gal pals from the Baby Boomer Divas, Deb Stevens, editor of Global Music Star has kindly sent me a link to some recipes where you can use Vegemite!
In case you are a Yank, like me, and you don't know what that is - think peanut butter but with a vegetable base! It's a savory and salty paste made from leftover brewers' yeast extract! Yup, a beer byproduct with some veggies and spices. It's sort of a kissin' cousin to New Zealander's Marmite.
Most of the Australians I've met simply slather some on toast and munch away. If they've migrated to the states it seems to be something they miss terribly!
BTW, Vegemite is a product of Kraft Foods though I've never seen their logo on a jar here in the states.
So, there you have it. If you're feeling adventuresome you can usually grab a jar of it at Cost Plus Imports, which is one of my favorite places to find unusual foods and ingredients!!!
