When Emily asked if I was making a Marmite ice cream, my immediate reaction was EEK. But then curiosity got the better of me and when I Googled and found a HOMITE©®℗™℠ Ice Cream recipe, I got excited. Here, I am using Vegemite because I grew up in Australia and used to enjoy Honey and Vegemite on toast in my teenage years (sometimes also Honey, Vegemite AND Peanut Butter on toast, but we won’t go there). In the original Homite ice cream recipe, the ratio of honey to yeast extract is 4:3, but I am going with a 8:1 ratio. Seriously, Vegemite/Marmite is really salty stuff and a tiny amount goes a long way :)

UPDATE: It’s quite good! It’s just a little too sweet. I would reduce the amount of sugar to 1/3 cup and maybe reduce the honey also to 1/3 cup. Perfect amount of vegemite flavor!  PHOTO
