German Potato Salad

1 lb. bacon
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup vinegar
1 cup water
4 Tbsp. flour
4 Tbsp. sugar
3 tsp. salt
3 tsp. celery seed
12-15 cups boiled potatoes
pepper and parsley to taste

Cook bacon till crisp; drain (reserving the fat), and crumble.

Cook onion and celery in the bacon fat till just tender.

Blend in flour, sugar, salt, celery seed, and pepper to taste. Add vinegar and water.

Cook and stir till thickened and bubbly.

Add bacon and potatoes; heat thoroughly, tossing lightly so as not to break up the potato slices. It is best to put it in a slow cooker for a couple hours

Garnish with parsley.

Serve warm.
