12 slices bacon
2 cups onions, chopped
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar

While potatoes are boiling, cook bacon until crisp. Drain and crumble, reserving ¼ c. bacon fat.

Sauté onion in reserved bacon fat until tender. Stir in flour, 2 tsp. salt, sugar, celery seed, and pepper to taste. Cook 2 minutes, add water and vinegar; mix well.
