Corn-free syrup

I spoke to a very helpful employee at a local supermarket before Thanksgiving. She helped me locate an item in the store, marshmallows. She said she's allergic to corn, and avoids fun things like rice crispie treats and marshmallows on top of sweet potatoes because the marshmallows contain corn.

I recommended to her Lisa Lewis's cookbook, "Special Diets for Special Kids" for a corn-free marshmallow recipe. Not having a child with autism, she was unfamiliar with this cookbook. She said she'd look for it at her library. (I found it here via the University of Google.)

Autism Mom Stephanie Hemenway has a recipe for corn-free syrup to replace corn syrup in recipes (in everything except peanut brittle, she reports). That recipe is located online, HERE.

Don't forget, that Kosher for Passover Marshmallows will not have any Corn Syrup in them!
