Ingredients:  
1 small bag of red skinned potatoes
1 package of bacon
1 large white onion, chopped
Fresh parsley, chopped
Cider vinegar
Flour
White granulated sugar

Directions:
Boil the potatoes with the skins on. Cool, then peel and cut into small pieces. Cut the bacon into small pieces and brown until crispy in a deep frying pan. Drain 1/2 of the bacon grease and then saute the chopped onion in the frying pan with the remaining bacon grease. Crumble the crispy bacon pieces and put them back into the frying pan with the sauteed onions. Turn heat to low. Add 2 tablespoons of flour to the bacon and onions. Mix with a fork. It will turn into a paste-like mixture. Add 1 cup of vinegar, 3/4 cup of water, and 1/2 cup granulated sugar. Taste the sauce and if it is not tart enough, add more vinegar. If it is not sweet enough, add more sugar. Continue to stir until all is blended and the sauce thickens (slowly warm until it bubbles.) Add salt, pepper and some fresh parsley to the cut up potatoes. Pour the sauce from the frying pan over the potatoes and mix well. It is better to make this a few hours ahead or the night before so that the flavor can rest. Can be served warm or cold.
