    2 1/2  pounds        maine potatoes
    2      tablespoons   sweet pickle relish
    8      ounces        Mayonnaise -- Hellmann’s Brand
    1      stalk         celery -- finely chopped
    1      medium        onion -- finely chopped
    1                    green bell pepper -- cored, seeded, chop
    1      tablespoon    sugar
    1      teaspoon      salt
      1/2  teaspoon      Black pepper -- freshly ground
           pinch         cayenne pepper
                          - Large pinch, plus more for granish
 
 1) Wash the potatoes but don't peel them.  Place the potatoes in a large pot with
enough water to cover them.  Heat to boiling, then reduce the heat to a simmer. 
Cook the potatoes until they are tender but not mushy, about 30 minutes.  Drain
them and cool.
 
 2) Peel the potatoes - a butter knife works well.  Finely chop the potatoes and
place them in a large bowl.  Add the remaining ingredients and beat well until
blended.  The potatoe salad should be the consistency of a chunky purŽe.  Taste
it and add more cayenne, salt, or pepper if necessary.	Transfer to a serving
bowl and sprinkle lightly with cayenne pepper.
