Everything tastes of Bovril.
It happened yesterday, I found a jar of Bovril in the cupboard, I'd never seen it before. The reason it showed up was because Jodi had finished going through the cupboard as part of getting rid of all the old stuff.
I rammed a fork in, and mixed a huge glob with some salt and lots of vinegar in a bowl.
Instant yummy dip! I added sandwiches, and pizza to taste.
I wondered later how long we'd had it, and checked the top...BBE 2006.
It's mostly salt, and ingredients that probably kill more than 99.9% of all known germs so I'm not worried.
I was surprised at the vitamin list though - it read like an energy drink! Lots of B vitamins and other fun stuff. 100% in about 1/10th of a jar (under one serving).
I wonder if those vitamins would survive 3 years on a shelf? I don't know, but I know some of the B vitamins must be ok, as me wee turned ahem, more coloured.
