German Potato Salad

Not so sure why I thought this was a great idea today, but we had bacon and potatoes to use up, so why not? I halved the recipe because it makes a lot, but it was yummy, even with my disinterest in measuring anything.

3 lbs potatoes
1/2 lb bacon
3 tbsp flour
1 medium onion (diced)
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup vinegar

Boil, then peel & slice potatoes.

Brown bacon and break into small pieces.

In large pan, heat 3 tbsp bacon grease. Add flour and 1 1/2 cups water; stir until mixture thickens.

Add onion, sugar and vinegar to mixture and simmer for 5 minutes.

Salt & pepper potato slices to taste. Add bacon.

Pour mixture over potatoes. Garnish with parsley. Can be served hot or cold (although I prefer cold).
