Great Potato Salad ..... A Recipe From A Neighbor's Late Mother

Great Potato Salad
We have a community picnic over the Labor Day holiday. One of the women brought this potato salad last year. I asked for the recipe and she so willing obliged and shared the recipe stating it was her late mother's recipe. I would say one of the oldies but the goodies! I was putting away the items from the cupboards into my new kitchen when I came across the piece of paper with the recipe. I thought it would be great to share with you. This recipe seems too easy to be as good or tasty as it is.
7 medium potatoes
10 Tablespoons sugar
7 Tablespoons vinegar
3 eggs
2 teaspoons mustard
Boil potatoes with the skins; cool, peel and dice. 

Add sugar and vinegar to slightly beaten eggs. Cook over medium heat until it begins to bubble and thicken. Pour over diced potatoes. Add 2 teaspoons mustard and mayonnaise until you have the desired creaminess. The salad I tasted had a double batch of sauce and was very creamy.
