Question from Carol

For Mother’s Day, my mother-in-law wants me to make a cake with a boiled chocolate icing. The icing recipe calls for Karo corn syrup. I’m concerned it might contain GMO corn. What can I substitute for Karo? Would honey work?


Debra’s Answer

Here’s a great article about corn syrup that tells when and why to use it and gives the one brand to use that is organic and non-GMO. Personally, I don’t make anything that requires corn syrup, but your Mother’s Day request sounds like a time even I might make an exception.
