German Potato Salad

Scott found the original of this recipe in a West Lawn, Pennsylvania (local) Dutch Cookbook.  He changed it up a bit … leaving out a couple of ingredients he felt weren't needed and our family and friends love his version.  Oftentimes, it is requested at family gatherings.

German Potato Salad

3 lbs Potatoes
1 lb Bacon, diced
1 level Tblsp Prepared Mustard
1 Tblsp Flour
½ cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1 med Onion, diced
2 Tbsps Sugar
2 tsps Sea Salt
¼ tsp Fresh Ground Pepper
½ cup Water

Place washed whole Potatoes in a pot and cover with water.  Boil for about 25 minutes or until tender.  Peel and dice into bite size pieces.  Place in serving bowl and set aside.  Brown Bacon, remove from drippings and set aside.  Saute Onion in Bacon drippings until soft but not brown.  Stir in Flour until smooth.  Add Vinegar, Water, Salt, Pepper and Sugar.  Stir constantly until mixture boils and thickens slightly.  Remove from heat and stir in Mustard.  Pour mixture over Potatoes and add diced Bacon.  Serve warm.
