Step 1

Cook potatoes in jackets one day ahead. Cool and peel. Dice or slice the potatoes. If using canned potatoes (which I recommend) drain them and briefly rinse them.

Fry bacon, and add to potatoes.

To bacon grease, add large onion and salt & pepper to taste. Cook about 5 minutes and add to the potatoes.

To grease still in the pan, add the vinegar, water and sugar to make a paste. Pour over Potatoes and toss.

Add the green Pepper, green onion and celery. If desired, heat and serve. May also be served at room temperature. Add a bit of cornstarch paste to thicken if desired, adding it to the vinegar/sugar syrup, before adding it to coat the potatoes.
