Grandma Vera's German Potato Salad

Recipe from: CIndytc
Servings: 4 to 6

This recipe is on an old faded piece of paper from my Mother In Law who passed away a few years ago...

6 cups potatoes, peeled and diced
½ pound bacon
1 cup onion, diced
2 tablespoons flour
½ cup water
½ cup cider vinegar
4 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon celery seed
salt and pepper

Boil potatoes and drain, set aside to cool.

Fry bacon, reserve 4 tablespoons of the drippings. Fry diced onion in drippings until soft. Stir into the dripping the flour and stir well until brown. Add to browned mixture your water, vinegar and sugar. Stir fast so it does not lump up on you. It should get bubbly and thicken up. Pour hot mixutre over potatoes. Add crumbled cooled bacon. stir in celery seed and salt and pepper. You can add sliced up green onions on top if you would like. The sauce is easily doubled if you like it saucier.

Note:
I use splenda instead of sugar and it works great.
