Stewed Potatoes, Sour is a classic recipe that has been enjoyed by generations. This dish has its roots in European cuisine and has been passed down through families as a staple comfort food. The combination of tender potatoes, tangy sour flavor, and the aroma of fried onions create a truly satisfying dish.

Fun facts: Did you know that potatoes have a fascinating history? They were first cultivated in the Andes region of South America over 7,000 years ago. Spanish explorers introduced this versatile vegetable to Europe in the 16th century, and from there, it spread to the rest of the world. Potatoes became a vital food source, especially during times of scarcity, due to their high nutritional value and ability to grow in various climates.

Now, let's dive into the recipe:

Ingredients:
- 1 tablespoon of drippings (vegetable or animal fat)
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 4 medium-sized potatoes, peeled, washed, and quartered
- Salt, to taste
- 1 tablespoon of drippings
- 1 tablespoon of flour
- 1 cup of soup stock
- 2 tablespoons of vinegar
- 2 tablespoons of chopped parsley

Instructions:
1. Heat the tablespoon of drippings in a kettle over medium heat.
2. Add the finely chopped onion to the hot fat and cover the kettle. Fry the onions until they become golden brown and fragrant.
3. Place the peeled, washed, and quartered potatoes into the kettle. Sprinkle salt over the potatoes, ensuring they are well-seasoned.
