Grandma's German Potato Salad

Every Grandma has their ONE dish that they are famous for and this was my Grandma's. She had 8 children, so our family gatherings were LARGE. Sunday after sunday, holiday after holiday, family reunions, celebrations.........all with Grandma's German Potato Salad!!! I can't even begin to imagine the thousands of potatoes she must have peeled in her 82 years. This is the best German Potato Salad you will ever taste or make!!!

Cook 7 to 8 potatoes to fork tender. Peel and slice. Cut up 4 or 5 slices bacon into little squares; fry brown. Take bacon bits out of pan and put on potatoes.  Chop onion and put into grease. Fry slow. Add 2 tablespoons flour; stir well.  Add 1/4 cup vinegar, salt and pepper, 1/2 cup sugar and water for right consistency.(Should be like a thick dressing) Simmer a few minutes and put over potatoes. Mix gently.
