  You really think so?  Well, the spread is up there with my best contributions, at least when it comes to concrete, real things that one can TASTE.  

Oh, Lord, I know, this is a pitiful example of how procrastinatey (new word) I can be.  Don't even go there, but I will be on line, seriously, I want to say by October sometime.  But then again, if you don't believe me, I don't blame you.  



Oh I believe you Edna...I could be your twin at procrastination.  Just ask Isa.   I am getting better.   Really.

I confess I did not read this whole thread, just enough to get the recipe.

Is this stuff what they call "Marmite" in Britain?

No, it won't be Kraft.  It'll be some fancy organic brand and cost 8 bucks for 3 oz.

And it is sooooooooooooooooo easy to just make oneself, that anyone who buys the fancy premade stuff would be doing it the expensive way.

I feel that way about salad dressing, too:  it is SO easy to just whip up your own salad dressing in, like, two seconds flat, and it is soooooooooooo much better than the bottled stuff, both in terms of flavor and not containing junky ingredients, that I don't know why anyone buys bottled salad dressings, honestly.  If I can make salad dressing, anyone can.

I wouldn't want to market my spread precisely because it is so easy to make.  I want to encourage people to make their own.  So, get cracking, y'all!

Holy harmonic convergence, batman!  I just looked up "marmite" (I have often heard this mentioned but never knew what it was) and it DOES appear to be similar (although I can tell from the ingredients that my spread is superior/better, she said humbly!  ).  The "yeast extract" in marmite is apparently from nutritional yeast.  And marmite is apparently a savory condiment.  However, there are differences:

- My spread uses the whole nutritional yeast flakes, not an "extract"
- My spread contains oil (ideally, dark-toasted sesame, but olive oil is lovely, too)
- My spread contains just a dash of lemon or lime juice concentrate
- My spread contains sea salt, other spices are optional
- Marmite contains some ingredients mine doesn't

Gotta go, but that is very interesting, I'll have to try marmite sometime!  I think my HFS sells a version of it, I'll have to check.  If the ingredients check out, I'll have to give it a whirl.  However, it won't be as good as my spread...just sayin'!

9/14/09 Marmite Update - Okay, well, I saw Marmite at the HFS on Friday afternoon!  I read the ingredients and, between that and eyeballing the substance through the glass jar, I think I can correctly guess that my spread is WAY better, taste-wise and nutrition-wise.  However, as they say, "don't knock it 'til you've tried it", so I definitely want to try it sometime.  It was terribly expensive, at almost $6.00 for a tiny little 4 oz. jar, so I didn't get it.

I then noticed in the GenoType Diet book that, lo and behold, Marmite is listed and it is a superfood for my type, no less!  Interesting.  Didn't notice that before!

I'm sticking with my spread but I would be keen to try the Marmite sometime.

your spread is better than marmite, and has no avoids!

Well, apparently marmite has no avoids either because it is listed as a G2 superfood, isn't that an interesting factoid?  I never noticed it before, I guess because it isn't a food I'm familiar with, but there it is.  I can just tell (I think--can't be sure until I actually try Marmite) that my spread is better, though, on account of it uses whole nutritional yeast flakes versus "yeast extract" AND also contains dark-toasted sesame oil (nothing with dark-toasted sesame oil could be bad  ).

I actually can't take total credit for my spread because, many years ago, in a galaxy far, far away, I lived in a vegetarian dorm for a brief spell in college.  Someone or several someones in that dorm used to make, and turned me on to, popcorn with butter and brewer's yeast.  O.  M.  G.  One of the very best things I ever tasted!!!  There was salt involved, too, I hasten to add.  It must have been a Vermont circa early 80's thing because at the theater in town (the Savoy Theater, Montpelier), you could get brewer's yeast on your popcorn.  That one fact alone, btw, proves why Vermont is my spiritual home...but I digress.  Anyway, it was a short hop, skip and a jump from the popcorn w/butter and brewer's yeast to me playing around with brewer's and nutritional yeast and other oils, adding a dash of lemon juice, salt, garlic, whatever and WHOMP, der it is!

Learned a lot in Vermont...
