Marmite is a condiment that forces one to exercise restraint, and people hate her for it. It’s a thick, yeasty paste that tastes like condensed, slightly burnt soy sauce, and even a modest amount can overwhelm one’s palate and ruin a perfectly good piece of toast. But once you learn to harness its salty power, you’ll have a mighty (vegan) source of deep, dark umami.

Marmite is good in soups, pasta, gravies, and anything roasted, and—because it is one of the most savory condiments you can buy—it absolutely slaps in savory cocktails. It’s great in a Bloody Mary, and it can be used to make a vegetarian, sort of faux Caesar or Michelada (which both call for clam juice) by providing a bit of “meatiness” without any meat (or clams). One-eighth of a teaspoon per Bloody, Caesar, or Red Beer should be plenty, but you can always add more, so err on the side of too little. (Too much Marmite is almost impossible to come back from.)

It also makes a surprisingly nice, absolutely filthy martini, or Marmtini, if you will. Again, you don’t want a lot. Just dip a chopstick in the Marmite, then stir it around in your drink to get the Marmite into solution, where it will provide a nice amber hue and shockingly subtle amount of dark, savory flavor.

To ensure the Marmite actually makes it into your drink, add it to room-temperature booze before you add any ice. Ice will make the paste seize up, solidify, and cling to your chopstick or measuring spoon. Once Marmite has been dissolved into your beverage, add ice, then shake or stir as usual. Be sure to fine strain through a sieve, however; little blobs of Marmite are not what you want in a martini, no matter how dirty you like ‘em.

Apple will replace AirPods Pro for free with faulty noise cancellation, static or crackling

Published

on

Today, exactly one year after Apple first launched the AirPods Pro — and thus the same day the very first AirPods Pro owners will see their one-year warranties expire — Apple has launched a repair program that offers free repairs or replacements for another whole year if your AirPods Pro experience issues with noise cancellation or static.

Specifically, Apple will fix:

Crackling or static sounds that increase in loud environments, with exercise or while talking on the phone

Active Noise Cancellation not working as expected, such as a loss of bass sound, or an increase in background sounds, such as street or airplane noise

Apple says only a “small percentage of AirPods Pro” are affected by the issues, but it apparently wasn’t just an early batch — Apple says affected units were manufactured “before October 2020,” meaning every AirPods Pro ever made might be eligible. That’s quite a recall if so. Apple says it will repair faulty AirPods Pro for two years after you first buy them.

We’ve heard complaints about degraded noise cancellation before, and at least one Verge editor has replaced their AirPods Pro under warranty. It’s nice to hear that Apple isn’t just cutting buyers off as soon as that warranty expires.
