So after making my own lollipop video, I thought to myself, what if I actually run out of corn syrup during one of my batches? And that’s when I thought, let me give this a good old DIY try and see what I can come up with for corn syrup substitute.
For this recipe you need:
2 cups of sugar
¾ cups of water
¼ teaspoons cream of tartar
A pinch of Accent
I use Accent because it has 60% less sodium than salt.
Combine your sugar, water, cream of tartar and pitch of accent on medium heat. Once the pot starts to boil, increase the heat to medium/hot.
Take your candy thermometer and put it in the pot. You’re looking for the temperature to get to 100 degrees Celsius or roughly 211 degrees fahrenheit. Once it hits that temperature immediately take it off of the stove and allow it to cool for about an hour.
Once it cools, you’ll notice a bit of thickness to the syrup. This is a good sign. Now it’s time to transfer it to your containers. And you’re all done.
They should keep for quite some while.
Now you have your own homemade corn syrup and you could use it in any of your recipes that require actual corn syrup.
