This sauce lives up to its name, its FAB, it made 20 cups plus what DS eat when he can home from work,  :D
Very economic as it cost me $1.35 per serve. 4 containers in the freezer and what we had for dinner, will definitely  be making this again. Thanks Chookie for the great recipe.

Jen,  so glad you like it.  Bit of a fuss to make,  but as it makes a lot and can be frozen,  worth the effort.

I will cook the 2kgs of mince and make a lasagna and cannelloni for the freezer or the kids to take home.

Michele, I cook up 1kg & it feeds about 12 serves.

Chookie, temted to replace my red wine with the golden syrup, does it make it sweet?

Hally the golden syrup cuts the acidness of the tomatoes it would be like adding sugar, also bring out the flavour of the tomatoes.
I used to use red wine but think i will be adding golden syrup after making this recipe.
I didnt find it sweet at all.

just had a good laugh, Michelle Bridges,  The diet and exercise lady, has just posted a Bol recipe in the Age.  It doesn't have the Golden Syrup or Cinnamon, but is pretty much the same.

Hally, I think Jen has it worked out.

This recipe sounds good and will give it a try was going to make it tonight but my golden syrup was finished.
I don't like red wine in my bolognaise sauce so this is appealing.  :)

Thanks jen & chookie.

I have never had a problem with acidity in my sauces, I made - kg of mince yesterday but stuck to my old method, next time will try with golden syrup. Wonder which has less calories a glass of red wine or the gs.

I think the red wine would win Hally.

I came up with 91 calories for a glass of red wine and 21 calories for 1 tspn golden syrup which equals say 3 tsp per tablespoon - 6 x 21 =126 calories.   Open to opinions though, that is just my calculations.

Don't think the calories are important over 20 cups of sauce. ;D

Good thinking sue-Jen will try adding both next time, Dh loves it when I cook with wine as he gets to finish off the bottle 😃

I usually put anchovies in MySpace bog, I guess it is a bit like using umami. I will definitely give this a go though.
