kartoffelsalat (no-mayo potato salad from the black forest)November 13, 2010
one more tried-and-true family recipe from the schwarzwald before i post a bunch of new things i want to try.
then i need to try and sleep.
but how can i sleep when the sauerbraten will be ready tomorrow! it’s worse than waiting for someone to stop squirming.
anyway, steam or boil some potatoes. chop ’em into chunks. throw ’em in a bowl.
fry some bacon. don’t toss the fat. crunch the bacon and return the crumbles to the greasy pan with some beef stock, apple cider vinegar, salt, pepper, a pinch of nutmeg, a little sugar, and maybe some onions. boil it a little and pour it over the potatoes.
southern germans make the best potato salad in the world.
