Strange Recipe For Potato Salad - I'll Let You Know How It Turns Out
John was gone all last week - in Chicago for business. Playing golf and eating in unique restaurants. He came back with a recipe he wanted me to try. It's for Potato Salad, which I was already planning on making for Sunday. (If you don't believe me, just check in the door of the refrigerator where the hard-boiled eggs are waiting.) I was going to wait until tomorrow to start, but the first step was so different that I couldn't wait. You "candy" (cook in a sugar syrup - this one uses vinegar and sugar - and then leave the seeds to soak in the liquid after you have thickened it) 1/2 cup of Mustard Seeds. The rest is a fairly straightforward Mayonnaise-based Red Potato Salad, just adding the sugary seed at the end. It also calls for some honey, which I will test on a spoonful before I commit the entire batch. But the recipe doesn't include eggs. Maybe I'll Devil them. Maybe those Deviled Eggs will be the only thing worth eating when I'm done.
