Amish Funeral Potato Salad

Although the name of this potato salad is a bit macabre, it’s very good! And I never actually had this at a funeral. It was served at the communal Sunday dinners after church all summer long. This is the recipe as given to me and it makes a lot! I halve it to make enough for the family with some leftover. My guess is it would serve about 8-12 as written. As with all the potato salads I make I prepare this the day before to let the flavors blend before serving.
