Modified Hazan's Bolognese - Was this heresy?

jfood | Nov 28, 2010 10:12 AM

At the end of the day I have 13 1 pint jars of MH Bolognese in the basement so I am pleased as punch. But to get to this point I decided to modify a few items in what I consider the best homemade bolognese.

I started with a 106oz can of san marzanos from costco, so i needed to change all of the quantities. I diced a baseball sized onion and then did the math and it wanted 18T of both butter and OO. That struck me as a ton of butter / oil, so i reduced the butter to 1 stick (8T) and did likewise to the OO. So far it looked like the right choice. 3 stalks of diced celery and 3 large carrots diced, still looking good. added 6# of chuck, roger; then the wine, which I reduced the amount to one bottle; kept the correct milk, nutmeg and the tomatoes which i used my immersion blender before adding to the pot. a few hours later, a big freakin' pot of heavenly goodness. a couple of hours later, the canning was completed, tops marked and cooled.

thoughts on changes from all you other MH bolognese lovers? Am I destined to eat the MH canelloni with the devil?
