Trying Australia's Vegemite A Second Time

Vegemite Toast

I've tasted Vegemite once, and I recall it being rather bitter. But that was so long ago, and I never really knew what to do with it. So this morning while a local Australian colleague was getting coffee (another local obsession, BTW), I asked for some Vegemite toast just to give it another try.

And you know what? I liked it. Yes, it was a little bitter, but what was more pronounced at first was just how salty and savory it was, in a good way. I immediately mentioned that it was a bit like anchovies: very umami. I don't remember it being like this last time, but I'm converted.
