Marmite – The ads emphasize the “love it or hate it” reaction to this spread – oh and how I love love love it. On toast. With butter (preferably Kerrygold). But what is it you may ask? Marmite is a sticky, dark brown paste that’s made from yeast extract, a byproduct of beer brewing. It’s very salty… a little goes a very very long way. I know, I know, it’s not the most appetizing description but the taste is absolutely one of a kind. I’ve loved it since I was a child, but rarely do I meet anyone else who shares this fondness. Try it- you may be surprised!
