Saure Erdapfel (Sour Potatoes)

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at

2 - 3 large boiling potatoes (White Rose, etc)
2 - 3 slices bacon
1 medium onion, chopped
2 tablespoons flour
1 1/4 cups beef or vegetable stock
1/2 teaspoon capers
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon marjoram
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2-3 tablespoons finely chopped sour pickles
1 tablespoon white or apple cider vinegar
snipped fresh parsley for garnish

Scrub but do not peel the potatoes. Cook in a glass or ceramic batter bowl in microwave using 3 minutes per potato as a guide. They should be tender when pierced with a fork. Cut into slices about 1/2 inch thick. Set aside. In a heavy bottomed saute or fry pan, cook the bacon until crisp. Remove the bacon but leave the bacon fat in the pan. Add the chopped onion to the pan and cook about 5-6 minutes until lightly browned. Crumble the bacon and add to the onions along with the flour. Cook about 1 minute and then whisk in the stock, capers, salt, marjoram, thyme, and pepper. Cook and stir with a whisk until the mixture has thickened like a gravy. Stir in the chopped pickles, vinegar and potato slices. Cook and stir over medium heat a few minutes to blend flavors and to finish cooking of the potatoes if they were still a little crisp when you cut them. Taste, correct seasonings, and serve garnished with snipped fresh parsley.
