They get us addicted young in Australia. When Mum was both pregnant and breastfeeding a teaspoon a day was recommended, and my first rusk was smeared generously with Vegemite. What hope do we poor kids have?

Of course the internet debates rage - what a great use of a global infrsatructure - LOL...
Yeast??? Malt??? Hmmm... maybe there is something useful to do with this stuff after all! Who knew?

Well, the ever indispensable Google did reveal that Scottish prisoners use it, rotting fruit and a bit of water to make a "special brew". Have to admit, that does sound rather special!

Re: Neverending Marmite

There was a cooking segment on the news here in nz a while back where they compared various marmite recipes from books and had a tv chef make his version, public taste tests had his version as being indistinguishable from the commercial product
It was from memory yeast flakes,salt and colouring blitzed together

I'll see if I can find the quantities

Not sure why it would start ferment in the jar as there is no food source for the yeast?

That's exactly what I thought, which is why I tried googling it, and couldn't find anything. Therefore I presume it can't happen.

I considered it might have been an April Fool's trick I discovered a bit late, but no kidding, when I opened the jar it literally started oozing out over the edges, and awesome as our crew are, I simply don't see how they could have made that happen...
