Vegemite Fruity Macarons

Vegemite in macarons? In doubts that you ever taste before or in other words you do not even know there is vegemite inside macarons. The taste is so unique, salty and sweet with macarons shell, the combination definitely give you a blast. I've done the several eating tasting with few of my friends in Australia last 2 weeks ago, nobody can guess the ganache actually contains of vegemite. The idea came from the toast with vegemite, since I came to Australia, that's was my first time in my life knowing that Australian likes to eat vegemite in toast. Unlike Asian, we normally eat this vegemite or rather Bovril with plain porridge. 

Followed from my previous post - Dressing Up Macarons, I discovered that a need to add on some saltiness into macarons. With the combination of raspberries's sourness, sweetness of macarons shell, the vegemite makes such a wonderful job to blend them together. Believe it or not, the vegemite taste is fully covered, it taste more to saltiness of caramel sometimes. 

Sprinkle some poppy seeds on top of macarons, make the tasting more enjoyable.

If you opt for more natural fruity sweetness, you may substitute raspberries to blueberries or combine both together.

Bite into half, oh yum!
