Allowing for 2/3 cup per person - here is a recipe for 50. You can just double it. Doubled, it should make about 68 cups.

1 and 1/2 pounds bacon

&frac; cup flour

15 pounds potatoes, boiled cooked and diced

2 cup chopped onion

3 cup fine chopped green pepper

1 and 1/2 cups vinegar

6 cups water

2 tablespoons salt

1 sliced onion

1 teaspoon pepper

Parsley for garnish.
