Hot German Potato Salad
If you haven't made this before you are missing a
great treat.  It is simple and always gets raves every

10 med new potatoes
6 slices bacon
2 1/2 Tbsp. flour
6 Tbsp. cider vinegar
1 1/2 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tsp. dry mustard
Salt and Pepper to taste

Boil the potatoes in their skins until just tender.  Meanwhile, fry the bacon until crisp.
Reserve 4 tablespoons of bacon fat and discard the rest.  Drain the bacon well,
crumble and set aside.
Heat the reserved bacon fat and stir in the flour. Cook slowly, stirring continuously
for about a minute.  Remove from the heat and add 1 1/2 cups hot water and the vinegar.  
Mix well, return to low heat and cook, stirring, until smooth and thick. 
Add sugar, mustard, salt and pepper and cook for 2 more minutes. 
Drain the potatoes, peel and slice them while warm.   Toss with the dressing until
they are well coated.  Sprinkle with the crumbled bacon and serve.
