I like to use Marmite in my soups and stews for additional depth of flavor, but that lid glues itself shut to the jar and it's an impossible task to get it open. It is kept it in the refrigerator to ensure freshness, so this may be a contributing factor. I have discovered a method of getting the lid off the jar with a minimum of fuss.
As a note, if you would like to try this item, spoon out the necessary amount into a coffee cup, add boiling water or very hot cooking liquid, stir vigorously and dissolve before adding to the cooking pot. Otherwise, you spoon out a glob into the pot, and then spend 5 or more minutes chasing it around the pot, trying to dissolve and mash it into oblivion.
Marmite is very popular in vegetarian cooking for flavor as meat is not used. I buy it at Kroger Grocery store and various health food stores around town. Central Market also carries it and their well known standard Texas grocery store name is HEB.
