      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

German Potato Salad

Recommended Posts

I dont have an exact recipe but I make a german type tater salad often.

Cook your taters to desired doneness

then I add finely chopped onion, red pepper chunks left big enough for people to avoid, and black olives - halfs or small whole ones.

Then I make a simple dressing with olive oil, dijon mustard, redwine vinegar, lemon juice, and salt n pepper.

Wish I hade measurements but this is one I just wing. Oh I also add some cajun seasoning and parsely. I like it equally well warm or chilled.

A simple non mayo salad...

Thanks DC. BTW, I just made a batch of your crunchy pickles. They need to sit one more day and I'll give them a try.

kitchy, I believe I may be able to help you out. This is a favorite in my household. Came from my very 'German Great-Grandma' German Potato Salad: Boil enough potatoes to make 2 full qts of sliced potatoes. Brown 6- 1/4" thick slices of diced bacon and drain, but save the grease! Now cook in a large pot: 1 1/4 cups of water, 1/2 cup granulated white sugar, 2/3 cup vinegar, 2 tsp salt, dash black pepper, 2 Tbsp cornstarch (made into a paste with a little water), 1 chopped onion, 1 1/2- 2 Tbsp butter, and 2 Tbsp of the saved bacon grease. When this mixture is 'thick and glossy' pour it over the sliced boiled potatoes and let stand for at least 1 hour before serving. Keeping it warm during this time. The longer it sets, the more flavor will absorb into the potatoes. It gets even better with age (to a point grin)! Phred52

Thanks Phred. I know it's got to be good with all that delicious bacon (worlds most perfect food) in it. I will give it a try. I'm assuming red potatos are the way to go? I just picked some from my garden that should work great.

Kitchy, I normally do use reds, B-size if available, but I'm sure just about any other 'tater will work as well. Good Luck, I hope you enjoy it as much as we do here. Phred52

Do you leave the skins on or do you peel? Any problem with slicing potatos and then boiling them? Or do you think I need to boil first, then slice?

Kitchy, Sorry I didn't get back at ya earlier. As far as the peels, In the German Po salad, Granny always peeled them, Her American Po salad, she did both ways. I always peel them, boil then slice. I don't see why it would hurt to peel, slice then boil as they'll cook quicker. Humm, I may need to try it, What could I lose??!! I'm glad to hear the recipe was a hit! I come from a community where "you can't swing a dead cat" without hitting someone that's got a bunch of German in them! gringringrin Though the eatin's always good!! Phred52

I believe you will find the potatoes will have a grainy, mushy texture if you slice them before hand. They would tend to absorb too much water in the cooking process, due to a larger surface area in contact with the cooking water. A rough chop on the potatoes would work however to reduce the cooking time, and you wouldn't have to mess with them after they were cooked either.

Thanks Swimbait2009, That makes sense, now I don't need to try it and end up wasting a batch of 'taters. Phred52

Great recipe, One suggestion would be to cook them in the peels and then cool over night. Then peel and slice them the next day. The potatoes will will not get mushy at all.

    • Had a 69 Dodge Charger that had left and right hand lug nuts. Was pretty much a Dodge/Chrysler thing
    • Broom and shovel then Shop Vac in the spring if it's real heavy. Or leaf blower to spread out on the yard to break down if lighter. The cardinals are preferring the white millet on the ground right now 3 to 1 where I live. The other feed I am using is sunflower and safflower. 
    • I did that with some stale Christmas almonds, Blue jays found them and took all off them and deposited in the crotches of nearby tree branches. The nuts weren't out long, then they were gone.
    •   You could use your breaker bar now and re-torque while you are at home. 
    • We launched at Normana  and started on the NSST ,,, That wasnt groomed yet so turned around and hit the RR trail to Fish lake ,,, Met the groomer heading east ,,, Gave him some time to do more grooming and had nice smooth ribbon like trail for the trip back    NSST was groomed when we got back to the trailer 
    • I think that was fairly common at one time.   I recall havinga car or two with left hand threads on one side and right hand on the other.    I think the theory was something to do with the nuts not working themselves loose due to the wheel rotation (which seemed dubious to me when I heard it).   Might have been a chrysler thing.    
    • A Tucan? If you break them up I don't see a seed eater passing them by.    Maybe bait for Late Season Squirrel.  
    •   Well you must be talking about my old-New Cat?   Tore it down and found a finger tight head bolt and loose carb boot bolt!  Someone at the Cat plant went to lunch a little early!! The cylinder is in the shop right now so it may be back on the lake fishing anyway yet this year?  High speed trails. May be not?
    •  Following Monday's snow we hit the Reservoir Trail out of Twig Wed afternoon.  Freshly groomed and what a sweet ride it was but too short  More snow in the forecast.   Ride When and What You Can. Going out Fri night.
    • "A little too fast for a sled not completely broke in yet any way"  For what the new POO Axys or the 2003 Cat? Very low miles on an old sled is good but sitting idle for years is no good. Dirty carbs and or rust on the bearings was the Cats downfall.
