Your balls are pretty fuzzy. Might make for a weird mouth feel. Hard to predict what the MOINK committee will say. Maybe they like them fuzzy.

One question I didn't want to answer when my application was under deliberation was: YES, did the Vegemite make the MOINK balls taste better than those without Vegemite.

Yes they were better, but only by a bit, because I really didn't want to overdo it. I paid strict attention to trying to keep the mince and seasoning as simple and plebian as possible. Vegemite is a yeast extract. Its origan was as a by product of beer fermentation Vegemite itself has a very intense flavour and this can be extremely offputting to people not familiar with it... who may treat it like any other spread and slap it on thick like honey or peanut spead and then get a big surprise.

Basically, you just start with a little bit and see how you like it. As an additive to foods, you'll see yeast extracts in all sorts of things and they are mainly flavour enhancers. So, like when you whack some Worcestershire Saue, or Balsamic Vinegar into a hearty stew for that flavour boost, you can also do the same with a bit of vegemite... Now, I would not necesarily recommend whisking a pound of the stuff into the next beef bourginourne you make...(sic)... I DO recommend adding it to abasic meat pie mix or home-made burgers for that little bit of a zing... A tablespoon a pound would probably do the trick...

Give it a whirl!

Cheers!


Bill

Errr... so you're not keen on Vegemite??? Just remember the depleted uranium projectiles in those helicopters on the way here, came out of the Australian ground and we are your GREATEST HISTORICAL ALLY.

Oh sh!t... I'd better RUN!

Actually, it had nothing to do with vegemite...I just want more of that uranium and you're in the way. It's like getting oil from the Iraqi's. Just the way we are ya know.

I just checked. The vegemite factory is STILL on the nuclear strike list, ally or no...I'll give you a ring Bill when the missles are LOS! And you were exactly right. I tried vegemite as a spread to see what it was and tossed the whole jar afterwords in typical unknowing American fashion.

Strike called off on account of catching myself whistling "Who Can it Be Now", the ultimate foil hat anthem. Australia is spared due to catchy music. Maybe I'll give this vegemite a whirl. Where the hell would I find it?

Send more uranium.

Health food store probably, which is where I got mine (over 25 years ago though).

Yes, I know. Kind of disappointed that these were a tad out of focus. On my butt cook, my final picture of the shoulder before pulling was also out of focus. Need to work on those close-ups or play with my macro settings. Well, as I said earlier, I've got no problem w/ attempting it again. Just wanted to reserve a spot and perhaps get a bye.

Who makes a good vegemite? The only one I have ever seen is made by Kraft and if its anything like their bbq sauce....I'll pass. I also want to give marmite a try. What are some good brands?
