Wondra is what you say. It isn't as "floury" though. It feels a little grainier to me.
Here's what some research found:
"Wondra flour is an ingredient sometimes called for in baking recipes, mostly in some pie crust and tart crust recipes that promise a flaky and tender crust. It is actually a brand name for a type of instant flour and, because the brand is so widespread, the name Wondra tends to be used in recipes.
Instant flour is low protein, finely ground flour that has been treated so that it will dissolve instantly in water and not require the same long cooking process as non-instant flour to dissolve in a liquid and thicken it. The process is called pregelatinization, and it involve heat a starch (flour) with very hot water and/or steam, then drying it out, so that it has essentially been cooked already. Because of this, instant flour also very unlikely to form lumps when mixed with a water or other solution. Wondra also has some malted barley flour mixed into it, which acts as a dough conditioner in many breads."
Hetty - "Wondra General Mills" brand, is a wonderful Flour for making smooth gravies, as it has less gluten/protein than all purpose. All purpose can be used also but that has to be blended with some cold water for it not to make lumps. This had been around for a long time.
OO = Olive Oil. I don't like Extra Virgin in this as this is a light, delicate potatoe salad.
Scant i mean use less than add up to 1/2 C otherwise it gets less than delicate....
Not grated potatoes - using the slicing feature on a grater. I have a mandolin that I use stricly for This Potatoe salad - Swiss home fried potatoes and hungarian cuke salad. IFor these I like the potatoes and cikes thinly sliced. Helen
This is my German Potatoe Salad with 50 cloves studded, Mustard and apricot/honey marinate Pineapple/cherry Garnish, baked Ham. My Mothers Easter Bread . A german Chocolate nut cake.
Last year this time my best friend (not hearing from each other for 45 years) came to visit Longboat Key. They arrived late in their Condo and this was the meal waiting for them. (they were 7 deep) so they needed a bit of food. In germany they do not bake ham. They boil it. So this was a visiual and tasty treat.
Served Cold cuts - Home made Bread and mac salad with hard boiled eggs - to go with the cold cuts - I put them in boats because they had to sit quite a while and not everyone here likes mayo.
1/2 box of macs cooked to desired doness - I like done not el dente. chill
Sauce for macs. in a bowl blend
2 - T Mayo, 1T Sour cream, 2T Wine Vinegar, 2T Sugar, Salt to taste Pepper to taste. Blend well. More May if desired. Sour cream hold the sauce to the pasta so 1 T is good. Blend everything and adjust to your taste.
