As an Australian overseas, I cop a lot of suspicious looks when the infamous black spread gets a mention. Especially if there’s some left over on my face from breakfast.
In the last couple of weeks over received not one but two jars of Vegemite. One in a care package from Aus and one from our Scottish bakery family on our last weekend visit to them.
After the smell has put off most others in a 500 metre radius, the minority left who actually want to give it a taste (shout out to Erinn from California 😉) have had some trouble knowing exactly how to go about eating the stuff.
So to answer some queries, here’s a little guide.
The classic is on a nice piece of toasted bread with butter and a thinly applied layer of the mighty Veg.
While the school lunch classic (thanks Dad) is a Vegemite and cheese sandwich.
