Default Warn German Potato Salad


Warm German Potato Salad
8 slices of bacon, diced- fry, remove from grease - drain. Keep 4
Tbsp. bacon fat in pan.
Saute until golden 2 large onions, diced.
Add - 4 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. flour
1 tsp. salt
Add - 1/4 cup vinegar and 1 1/2 cups water.

For the potatoes: Use red potatoes. I use enough raw potatoes to
cover the bottom of my 5-quart pot. Cook in water until a granny fork
just pierces the potatoes. Peel, slice and drop them into the sauce.
Fold in gently.

Thanks so much. I had no memory of flour, but that makes perfect sense
to create a sauce.

Thanks, too, for mentioning a potato choice. The right potato makes
all the diff.

You are absolutely right about the potato choice. My daughter called
me a couple of years ago. She had guests coming and dinner planned
and she had made the potato salad with the russet potatoes she had on
hand. She wanted to know what she did wrong because the potato salad
broke up and turned mushy. I had never specified what potato to her.
She sent her son off to the store for red potatoes and made a new
batch and everything turned out fine. I've tried the yellow potatoes
on this and they also turn too mealy.

you really don't need it, the potato starches thicken
it up.

as a quicker substitute they have bacon crumbles that
are mostly cooked so you don't have to wait for the
bacon to fry and you don't have grease to throw away
when it's done. i normally crisp it up in the microwave
for about 40 seconds and that works well and quickly.

i like all kinds as long as they are cooked completely.

Not for someone who can't cook.

Simple, she over cooked them. It's even easier to over cook waxy
potatoes, At too high heat the exterior becomes mush while the
interior stays raw. The most important element for properly cooking
spuds is that they are all the same size.

You should use the right potato for a salad. A waxy potato is a good choice for a German type salad. I can't say if it would work at all in a Japanese potato salad. I love that stuff!

I have not noticed any thickening in GPS, though, so I am guessing the

The grease is a benefit in many GSP recipes. Not oodles of it, just a
clingy droplets.

I am strong in my potato choices for any kind of potato salad. My
latest pref is overpriced new reds that are done for about 5 mins in
the microwave and offer up fully cooked benefits, but only some
wonderful texture. I do like that texture- nothing hard or crunchy,
though.

Yes it is. It's the world's most colorful potato salad. Ham is a popular ingredient too. I had some from a store recently and there was something chewy in there. It took me a while to figure out it was dried cuttlefish. The weird thing about it was that it was damn tasty. My wife's co-workers have told her that my Japanese potato salad was the best potato salad they've ever tasted. It's going to be even better with cuttlefish!

That stirs a memory. When I used to visit my parents in the UK, I would
arrive in the early afternoon and they always served me a light lunch of
ham, fresh tomatoes and walnut-sized new potatoes from Dad's garden. He
harvested his potatoes while they were still small but would save a row
for my visit. There was also a bowl of freshly picked strawberries for
dessert.

Nice memories.

I did not plant any potatoes this year, as last year I got some sort
of nibbly critter that marked some tubers and trashed others. I loved
digging up the tiny ones to cook, though. Those are the best..

And my strawberries are doing well this year- although I do have to
fight off the chipmunks- basically, I scare them off by placing
mousetraps strategically around the large tubs I use for berries.

if you grow your own potatoes, you can cheat. You ease your hand down
into the soil and pull off the little lovlies. )

yep! It dilutes the vinegar to just the right strength. The flour
mixture thickens it to a correct saucy consistency for that amount of
potates.

Hard to tell. I never saw anything like it in Japan but dsi1's version

I wouldn't be shocked in Japan to see corn kernals used in such a way
though.

Yum! I only make it cold, without bacon, but that sounds wonderful. I
can't stand mayonnaise based salads.
