Amish Potato Salad
6 medium white potatoes with skins intact
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 cup celery, chopped
1 cup carrots, chopped
1 teaspoon celery seed
4 hard-cooked eggs, peeled and chopped
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
Boil potatoes in a large pot filled with enough water to cover. Cook for about 20 minutes, or until fork-tender. Drain, and set aside to cool.
While potatoes are cooking, hand beat 2 eggs, sugar, cornstarch, and salt together in a saucepan. Stir in vinegar, milk, and mustard. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in butter. Refrigerate until cool, and then stir in the mayonnaise.
Cut cooked potatoes into a medium dice. Place in large bowl. Combine with onion, celery, carrots, celery seed and hard-cooked eggs. Gently fold in the dressing. Refrigerate before serving to let the flavors blend. Serve chilled.
