Authentic Cincinnati Chili
October 10, 2011

The first time I prepared this recipe, a few months ago, was the very first time I ever had Cincinnati chili and I prepared it as a "five-way," with spaghetti, chili, onions, beans and shredded Cheddar. The only thing I did differently was to omit the chocolate (none on hand) and I used 1 tsp. of ground allspice instead of the whole berries. It was quite delicious, and in tasting the chili, I noticed that it was remarkably like the chili sauce used at one of my all-time favorite Worcester, MA haunts, George's Coney Island Hot Dogs, an institution in that city for almost one hundred years. So, while the chili with the spaghetti, et al, is great, I have been making batches of the chili to freeze to have on hand to make my own "Coney Dogs," Kayem Skinnies slathered with this sauce, yellow mustard and minced white onions on a New England style hot dog roll. I even give this sauce away as gifts, it is so popular. Thanks for sharing.
