All out of corn syrup and can't get to the store? Here you go! Yield and cook time are approximate.


  1. Combine sugar and water in saucepan.
  2. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, approximately 1/2 hour or until thickened.

What ever you call it...simple syrup....corn syrup, in a country where you don't have the luxury of buying corn syrup this is the perfect solution. I would only add it's best not to stir and instead swirl the also don't want the sugar water to caramelize or get brown, if you do might as well add some cream and butter to make caramel! I find 20 minutes is usually enough time, you just want it thick like corn syrup. I've made marshmallows and fudge using this corn syrup recipe. They were both big hits!

With an allergy to corn products, I often use this. I use a true simple syrup with 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water. Thanks!
