The Marmite effect in a Saffin and yet another recipe idea offered by my son-in-law and and goodness does it go down well!

Marmite jars are styled on the French pot-bellied cooking pot called 'marmite' (pron marmeet). Why that image was chosen in the first place remains a mystery especially as what was traditionally cooked in a marmite pot is fish stew! Most likely the original Marmite ceramic pot had a similar shape. [If you're interested in more Marmite facts go to]

Marmite is a yeast extract spread that you either love, or can't stand and was invented in the 19th century by a German scientist who discovered that brewer's yeast could be concentrated, bottled and eaten. Though Marmite has a high sodium content it is only ever eaten sparingly spread and is in fact extremely nutritional and very rich in B vitamins which help the body produce energy and red blood cells.

Cheddar cheese like all dairy products provides you with essential nutrients, including protein, calcium, vitamin D and potassium. Sufficient amounts of these nutrients help lower the risk of osteoporosis, diabetes, heart disease and high blood moderation!
