How to make it

  • Combine all ingredients in a heavy, large pan. Stir and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and put cover on it for 3 minutes to get sugar crystals off the sides of the pan. Uncover and cook until it reaches soft ball stage. 235 degrees... Stir often.
  • Cool syrup and store in a covered container at room temperature. It will keep for about 2 months. Makes almost 2 cups

    YOU SAVED MY DAY! Thank you so much for posting this. My Christmas caramels are a go again. Apparently my wonderful neighbor helped her wonderful self to my pantry again and my corn syrup disappeared. I thought my homemade caramels we shut down. . . then I found this. I made it and I am waiting for it to cool now, but the consistency and taste are right on. I will be adding an extra step into my Christmas caramels and they will be worth it. :)

    OOOOOOHHH thankyou for this post, I just found it, soooo many recipes I want to try on here and can't and more importantly for anyone in America, High Fructose Corn Syrup is unbelievably bad for you: causes Fructose Malabsorptio in people who otherwise would not get it, causes you to not feel full so you eat more, causes liver disease as the liver cannot cope with that much fructose. Sorry for the preach.
    Sooo Happy yay.
    I can make my own Cadbury cream eggs now, this was the last ingredient I had to find away to make safe for my son. Will save doing that for next year though LOL too much else going on for this Easter.
    Thankyou Thankyou

    I just read an article today about a possible link of corn syrup and mercury. It is not definitive, but concerning. I am going to do more reading, but will utilize your recipe in the meantime for the few things I have used corn syrup in.

    Hey, thanks, peeta! I always bypass recipes that have corn syrup in them because I don't want to go out and buy a bottle of something I will rarely use. This is great. I appreciate it. :)
