Picture of Iconic Australian Butter and Vegemite Cracker

Vegemite (/ˈvɛdʒɨmaɪt/ vej-ə-myt)is a dark brown Australian food paste made from leftover brewers' yeast extract with various vegetable and spice additives developed by Cyril P. Callister in Melbourne, Victoria, in 1922.

A popular spread for sandwiches, toast, crumpets and cracker biscuits as well as a filling for pastries Vegemite is a nutritious, and undeniably delicious start to the day.

So why not show people how to use the black axle-grease look alike?

All you will need to make these great crackers is some butter, Vegemite, crackers, knife and breadboard!

Step 1: The First Layer.

The first thing you have to do is decide on how many crackers you are going to eat.

Now you can spread the butter in a nice thick layer over the crackers.

Make sure you have lots of butter if you are American, it will help dilute the Vegemite.

Once you have spread your butter you can move on to the next step!

Step 2: The Piece of Goodness!

Now it is time to add the Vegemite.

If you are an American then take note of the amount in the first photo, this is about as much as most of you guys can handle - it is quite strong.

If you are from anywhere else follow the second picture ad get ready for a blast of taste!

Now you have chosen your amount go ahead and slather that stuff on! (I call it "stuff" because I'm even unsure if it is food...)

Once you have finished putting the Vegemite on the crackers you can go ahead and lick the knife and enjoy your snack!

This is how we do it down here in Aus! Nice to see an American get right into it and slather it on. That's good tucker, mate ;)
