Last week the Uk was shocked with the news that following a pricing dispute with its suppliers, Tesco announced that it would no longer be selling Marmite.  Cue mass hysteria.  This did make me reach for my 10 year supply jar of marmite. Halloween just round the corner, these halloween canapes are the perfect love child of mature cheese and marmite.

Ingredients:

  • Red Leicester  (or mature cheddar)
  • Round Crackers
  • Marmite

To make your life as easy as possible, buy ready sliced cheese.  Use your favourite. I chose red leicester mainly for its very orange colour.  This jar of marmite was given to me by a friend a couple of centuries ago, and its still going strong.
