What to do with Marmite?

I found a jar of Marmite in Stop & Shop today. Since I have never had it before, it was an impulse buy. What can I do with this British yeast extract?

1. Take it to a toxic waste dump. It's nasty.

2. I don't think it's that bad.

But, I can understand why a lot of people think it is nasty.

3. Encase it in concrete, dig a trench in the deepest ocean trench, and drop that sucker in. n/t

4. I like it but not on toast

I discovered it when I was a vegetarian, using it diluted in water, mixed with corn starch, as a sauce in stir fries. It gives a hearty, meaty flavor. I always keep it or Vegemite around for that reason.

It can also enrich pan gravies for roast beef, but use it sparingly.

6. Bury it in your back yard. Seriously. Unless you're Australian & have grown up

with the stuff, it's nasty beyond belief.

I'm not kidding. It's rank.

13. Good for you! Maybe you are, lol. I thought it tasted like old gym socks mixed with yeast

Not that I've ever had that, but I can just imagine.

12. Isn't that the stuff they scrape out of the vats

after the beer is brewed? From what I understand it is thick, yeasty, and nasty .

14. I talked my drunken ex into drinking the yeast

at the bottom of the bottles of home brew in an attempt to get enough thiamine into him so he wouldn't start developing neurological problems from his alcoholism. He developed a taste for it.

People used to flavor their bland porridge, especially during Lent when there was nothing else around, with ale barm, which they also used to start the next batch of ale as well as leaven their bread.

Dried brewer's yeast can be quite bitter, that's true. The same yeast grown to be nutritional yeast is pretty tasty, almost like cheese when you sprinkle it on popcorn.

As I said above, I have no problem with yeast or even Marmite. I just don't particularly care for it on toast.
