Corn Syrup Substitute
If you prefer not to use corn syrup in your cooking, you can easily make a sugar syrup to substitute. To substitute for light corn syrup, mix 2 cups of sugar and 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Add ½ teaspoon of vanilla if you wish. To make a substitute for dark corn syrup, use brown sugar rather than white sugar.
