"Vegemite" is a spread, sort of like peanut butter, that is made from yeast, and LOTS of salt. Really, really a huge amount of salt. It's practically inedible. Truly foul. But for some reason, the Aussies seem to like it.

If you want to know what it tastes like, mix about 1/8 teaspoon of brewer's yeast, 1 tablespoon of salt, and enough water to make a paste, and put it in your mouth. It's puckering.

Down Under, they spread the stuff on toast, like we do with butter.

A brewing byproduct rich in B vitamins, kind of like brewing yeast sediment highly salted. Nice on toast with a little butter, and on crackers.

It's...well...BROWN...and looks....not that great...as a foodstuff.

(I have a big jar of it! Come and get me!)

Think of old congealed motor oil with lots of salt.

Actually I love it on hot buttered toast spread real thin.

The signature block doesn't really apply to vegemite.

IMO, you take a bottle of soy sauce, and reduce it to a paste.

Been a while, but I had some in a restaurant "jelly" style package.

Made by Kraft, btw.

Oh, and it can be used as a thermal paste for mating heat sinks and cpus, although when it dries out, it loses some effectiveness.
