Anyone who has followed my blogs will know that I love Marmite: that iconic spread that you either love or hate. In fact I have probably blogged more about Marmite than I have blogged about pigeons. Anyway when I was away at Helen and Ian's wedding I received a present from Mark and Bryony. What? This or should I say these:
I've been reading the cookbook and the tips and even though I am a big user of Marmite in my cooking I've been quite surprised by some of the obvious things that I've missed. Perhaps I would never have thought of Marmite and watercress toasted soldiers to use with my boiled egg nor would I have put Marmite in my Roquefort, prawn and pear salad (and I'm not sure that I will even now). I already put Marmite with my baked beans and in stocks. However there is a whole new Marmite world about to open up: chicken, avacado and Marmite mayo wraps here I come.
The Marmite Mug turned out to be the same size as the very large Marmite jars that I buy:
This will be absolutely great for drinking, well, yes, for drinking Marmite. You could possibly use it for ordinary tea. But green tea with lemon, coffee, hot chocolate and the like? I think not. I'm sure that anything sweet would automatically taste of Marmite. Hmmm. No thanks. But for Marmite - absolutely!
