Rather tasty.

Wonder what's it's like when teamed up with black pudding ...

Haven't had that in years - used to have a hot cup after swimming.

Might pick some up, as soon as I've finished the Marmite.

What's with the Commonwealth countries and yeast extracts? Of all the flavors on Earth, they choose that one for toast.

It boggles the mind.

It's like cunnilingus on a woman with a yeast infection.

After googling, Borvil seems like a type of beef bouillon in spreadable form. That actually doesn't sound bad mixed with butter on toast.

that's exactly what it is. It goes well with a creamy cheddar as well. It's no different from putting bacon flavour on bread/toast

Hard to get out of your moustache too, Marmite that is.

Really nice dissolved in hot water with a heel of bread for dunking.

Are any other "mites" considered food for human consumption?

Off the top of my head... termite, dynamite, diatomite, thermite, stalagmite. And of course mite.

Dig in, maybe with some brown sauce.

cheese mite: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milbenk%C3%A4se
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casu_marzu
Quote:
Casu marzu is created by leaving whole pecorino cheeses outside with part of the rind removed to allow the eggs of the cheese fly Piophila casei to be laid in the cheese. A female P. casei can lay more than 500 eggs at one time. The eggs hatch and the larvae begin to eat through the cheese. The acid from the maggots' digestive system breaks down the cheese's fats, making the texture of the cheese very soft; by the time it is ready for consumption, a typical casu marzu will contain thousands of these maggots

I do that with beef when I make a roast... put a bit of red wine in the pan when it comes out of the oven, scrape up all of the beefy goodness, add some beef stock and boil it all down a bit. Sauce for dipping bread. To have Borvil to make it on demand seems like a win to me. I'll see if they sell it locally, else Amazon.

That's why I was specific about it being "food for human consumption." ;)

Used to do something similar with brisket - slow dry (covered) roast, render all the fat out - dripping, slam some bread in, magic.

It really is the perfect bite. Freshly baked, good bread dipped in beef juice.
