Potato Salad

Ok, it is potluck season, which means we pull out our best salad recipes to take.  This is about as involved as I get with a recipe.  But it is well worth it.  It is so yummy!  I try to make it in two days, so it doesn't seem so overwhelming.  Enjoy! This was from Mennonite Country Style Recipes by Esther H. Shank.

Step 1:
1 Tbsp Cornstarch
3/4 c. Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
Mix in top container of double boiler or you can do it in a regular size pot.

1 c. Water
1 1/2 Tbsp Vinegar
Add gradually

3 eggs, beaten lightly
Add.  Cook over boiling water, stirring constantly until thickened.  Remove from heat.

2 Tbsp Butter
Add.  Cool throughly

2 c. Miracle Whip
1/2 to 1 tsp prepared Mustard
Blend in.

Store in refrigerator.  Keeps for weeks.  Yields 1 qt.

Step 2:
2 lb or about 6 med potatoes-Cook until tender and dice
3/4 tsp Salt-Sprinkle over warm potatoes so it soaks in.
3 to 6 Hard cooked eggs, diced
2 to 4 Tbsp chopped Onion
Add the eggs and onion
2 c. or more of Basic Cooked Dressing, the above recipe.  Add while potatoes are warm for better penetration of flavor.
