today. Marmite!!! Holy crap, it has got to be the most foul tasting,
gut wrenching, disgusting thing I ever tasted. I'd rather lick an old
boot. No wonder you guys came to America - to get some decent food.
Barf I think the husband might be able to use it to grease up his
snow blower. I had to swallow a whole extra glass of red wine to get
rid of the taste - woe is me!! :-))
Well, am I disappointed!!! I thought you NB babes had good taste;
obviously I was misinformed.
I think Lucille described it to a *T* ... GOOP. It looks like motor
oil and tastes worse (well you know what I mean). :-) My husband is
like 'Mikey' - he'll eat anything ... but one taste of that was enough
for him. He can't believe a human would eat that stuff. And you
spread that on bread like peanut butter?
Not such a good idea to compare it to peanut butter. One of my faves, but
off the menu until the FDA says it's all clear. There's been a salmonella
outbreak that's been traced to products made with peanut paste. So far they
say jars of peanut butter off the shelf are fine, but I'm not sure I want to
Since the plant under suspicion only makes PB for further processing, I
refuse to worry about it. Besides, I'm the only one in the house that eats
I know the jarred stuff is supposed to be fine. I love it and my favorites is good, old fashioned, not the healthiest, Skippy Chunky. I also have a sealed package of Nutter Butter cookies. I emailed Nabisco and got back an answer the next morning stating they weren't involved in the recall at all and don't use any products from that company. She stated unequivocally that their products both here and in Canada were okay to eat but since I'm having a UTI for a change (I get them every so often) I figure it's best to wait with eating peanut butter.
I wouldn't touch any of PB with a 10ft pole.
I wonder why a few cases of salmonella, or other pathogens, are such a terrible uproar in this day and age. I remember culturing out Salmonella, Shigella, Proteus and other nasties in the lab when I was a trainee.
WE have become so sensitive to pathogens these days, because we don't accept some things as being the norm, and statistically....a way higher percentage do well, that the fractional percentage don't.
Probably hasn't been written too well, but my mother said "We all eat a peck of dirt before we die.) There was no refrigeration, or rare, and a peck is IIRC a 1/4 of a bushel.
