    1      teaspoon      Honey
      1/2  ounce         Unsweetened chocolate -- grate
                         Tomato juice as needed
    9      ounces        Thick spaghetti;cook -- butter
   16      ounces        Canned kidney beans -- heated
                         drained
    2                    Onions -- chopped
      3/4  pound         Cheddar cheese -- grated
 
 1.  Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large sillet. Heat to medium and add
 the meat, the first two chopped onions that appear first in the
 recipe,the garlic.
 Cook until Meat is browned but still soft. 2. Add tomato sauce, catsup,
 water and vinegar.  When mixture boils, add the rest of the salt,the
 remaining spices and herbs, the honey and chocolate. Adjust seasonings,
 adding more salt if it needs perking up, more cumin for a more strident
 chili flavor, more cinnamon and mace if you want it more aromatic, more
 cardamom for more band and more chocolate for more body. 3. Cover and
 simmer on very low heat for about 1 hour, stirring and tasting
 occasionaly, adding tomato juice if it is getting too dry. It should be
 a thick sauce. Discard bay leaf. 4. For 5 way chili (use small oval plate
 if available), layer spaghetti on the plate, top it with chili, then
 with a sparse layer of kidney beans & then choped, raw onions. Pat on
 the cheese while the chili is still hot and serve immediately, with
 oyster crackers on the side. You may, if desired, omit either the beans
 or onions, or both, for 3-way chili or 4-way chili. Serves 4
