Amish Style Potato Salad- cooked dressing


8 medium-sized potatoes
4 hard-cooked eggs, diced
1 medium-sized onion, diced
2 small carrots, ground
1 cup celery, diced
1 1/2 tsp salt


1 Tbsp flour
2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup vinegar
1 tsp mustard
1 1/2 cups water
2 Tbsp butter

Cook potatoes in jackets until soft. Cool and peel.  Dice potatoes. (Or you may peel, chop and boil potatoes until just beginning to soften.) Grate carrots or grind up in food processor/chopper.  To make dressing, mix together the dry ingredients, add eggs, vinegar and water. Melt butter in saucepan and add dressing. Cook until thickened. Cool and pour over potato mixture and mix lightly.  If desired, 1/2 cup of sandwich spread or mayonnaise may be added to the dressing before it is poured over the vegetables.
