you should change your translator ;o)

Seems to me rather untypical german - celery seeds are rather uncommon here... caraway could be more likely..

I have never heard of those type of potatoes. They definitely not in any supermarket of my corner of the world. I might be able to find them at a large vegetable market close to me. Will be interesting to investigate.

in america they're often referred to as a type of fingerling. little, long, bumpy redskin fingerlings.

i bought a bunch of mixed fingerlings recently and the name on the bag was weird enough to remember.

I used to make a German potato hotdish (okay, for those not from MN, a casserole) with a white sauce made with bacon fat instead of butter that I'd bake it in the oven like scalloped potatoes. I would sprinkle the vinegar on the potatoes when they were cooling (but never used 1 cup!) Hmmmmm...might have to resurrect that, add a bit of horseradish to the white sauce to give it another dimension...

Authentic German potato salad

This is the recipe my grandma uses to make an authentic german (fränkischen) potato salad - I hope you like it!

Preparation time: 1h, for 12 people

What do you need:

1.2 kg waxy potatoes
1 heaped tablespoon of beef stock
¼ liter hot water
1 small onion
8 tablespoons vinegar
6 tablespoons oil
Salt, white pepper, sugar
125g Cornsalat


Cook, peel and shred the boiled potatoes.
Dice onion into small pieces and mix with the potatoes.
Now dissolve 1 tablespoon of beef stock in ¼ liter of hot water and add 8 tablespoons of vinegar together with salt, white pepper and sugar and pour over the potatoes.
Mix everything carefully and let the potatoes soak up the sauce.
Just before serving, add the oil and toss again together with the corn salad.

Careful how you use the term "authentic". There are probably as many recipes for German potato salad as there are Omas.

Good point Craig. My German grandmother always used bacon in her "authentic" salad.

I think this should be beef base or beef stock granules.

In case anyone is wondering, this is what's more commonly known as "lamb's lettuce" or "lamb's tongue" and is a somewhat bitter, leafy green. It can be found in parts of Europe, but is not easy to find in the US.
