Miss J's German Potato Salad
(Just as she wrote it)
- 1/2 lb. bacon
- 1 med.onion chopped fine
- 1/4 cup vinegar
- 2 tlbs. water
- 3 tlbs sugar
- salt and pepper to taste
- 4lbs small white potatoes
This makes enough for 2 or 3 people
For a large 5-6 quart crock pot (used for serving) you would have to double and triple the vinegar, water and sugar.
Double everything else.
Fry bacon until crisp and can be broken into pieces.
Remove bacon, keeping the drippings in the pan.
Add onions and simmer until soft, then add vinegar,water and sugar.
Cook potatos in the skins just until tender. Peel and slice.
Layer potatoes, bacon salt and pepper, then add liquid and stir.
(If you don't have enough liquid. I have used oil and vinegar and sugar add to potatoes and stir.)
