Marmite

Ok, so I just opened this sucker....do I need to put it in the fridge? I kept my last jar in the fridge and it was very hard to spread whenever I needed it - can I keep it in the cabinet?

I usually spread on crackers, sometimes with cheese too....any other unique uses for Marmite?

Any other uses in cooking? Like as a flavoring enhancer?

Lets talk Marmite! so salty, so yeasty, so good :)

NEVER in the fridge - there have been some other threads on this too ref to cooking uses

I just keep it in the cupboard. I don't think any known microbe (or at least any harmful ones) could survive in it!

I'm hooked on it. Found that our local natural-foods store keeps it well-stocked. I don't refrigerate it, go through a jar pretty quickly, and have used it in stews and, most recently, a Welsh rarebit, with great results.

Here's the thread I started on Marmite in the UK forums:

no fridge. Keeps for years after opening. With its high salt content, I dont think anything could grow in/on it, except perhaps microbes from the Dead or Salton Seas.

Yum --- just bought a sourdough loaf of bread (fresh from bakery section,.....I LOVE sourdough bread...its the combo of the sourness and the chewy bread with the crusty exterior) and spread on some marmite, covered liberally (like three slices....thick sliced) of sharp cheddar...popped in toaster oven until it was browned

SO GOOD

I've found the best bread (also for paninis and all sorts of other uses) with Marmite is Trader Joe's Tuscan Pane, which comes pre-sliced for under $2, I think. Toasted, loaded with butter and then smeared with Marmite ... I could eat it all day.

Once I made the grave mistake of creating a marmite, peanut butter, tomato, sriracha, rocket, and amba (pickled mango) sandwich.  Illness ensued.

That one does deserve an "Ewwww".,....

What were you thinking? Pregnant much? hahah

I dont even get cravings that bad/weird when I am PMSing!

Disturbingly, my capacity for logic was not that far gone: marmite + peanut butter is good, peanut butter + sriracha + tomato is good, tomato + pickled mango is good . . . however, all of these things together, well, not so good.

Chappie, that sounds amazing. I'm looking on my shelf now and I have popcorn...I have Marmite but it's 1:30am - Maybe tomorrow.

What better time is there than 1:30 a.m. for Marmite-buttered popcorn?

I wonder how it would taste in a caramel, sort of a sweet/savory caramel, then mixed with popcorn and formed into balls...

No need to refrigerate it. It will last for months if not years in the cupboard.

Not in my household!

I'm noticing, now that we live in a slightly more humid area, that the marmite <gasp> slowly gets runny when stored in the cupboard! This goes against a lifetime of experience and is extremely disconcerting of a morning.
