This time it’s Marmite.
Ystrad, Rhondda, Wales: Claire Allen (36) noticed the apparation of Jesus in the underside of the lid of a jar of Marmite as she was making her son toast. Her husband and their three children see the face of Jesus as well.
Marmite is made from yeast extract, a by-product of beer brewing, and is suitable for vegetarians and vegans. The British version of the product is a sticky, dark brown paste with a distinctive, powerful flavour, which is extremely salty and savoury with umami qualities, somewhat comparable to soy sauce. [somewhat like beef boullion]
People might think I’m nuts, but I like to think it’s Jesus looking out for us. We’ve had a tough couple of months; my mum’s been really ill and it’s comforting to think that if he is there, he’s watching over us.
