Many people have asked about the difference between Organic Light Corn Syrup and high-fructose corn syrup. Conventional high fructose corn syrup is processed with chemicals and artificial additives. HFCS is produced in huge quantities as a cheap alternative to beet or cane sugar. The average American consumes 39 lbs. of high fructose corn syrup a year. HFCS is a key ingredient in conventionally processed soft drinks and "junk foods." Many experts believe and studies show that foods containing HFCS contribute to poor health.
Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Light Corn Syrup is a natural food product that you can purchase knowing that you will not be introducing anything artificial into your body. It is a delicious USDA organic certified light corn syrup, produced without chemicals, additives or artificial flavors. It will add robust sweetness to all of your baked goods and candies.

Mani's Peanut Brittle
1 ½ cups Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Sugar
½ cup Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Light Corn Syrup
¾ cup water
¼ teaspoon salt
2 cups roasted, salted peanuts
¾ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons organic butter
Lightly yet thoroughly brush a marble slab or baking sheet with vegetable oil.
Stir together the sugar, corn syrup, water and salt. Bring to a low boil and cover for three minutes, allowing the steam to cook down any sugar crystals that may have formed on the sides of the pan. Uncover and boil till a candy thermometer reaches 250 degrees. ( If sugar crystals form on the sides of the pan, brush them down with a pastry brush dipped in warm water). Add the peanuts, stir occasionally for even cooking and boil till the thermometer reaches 295 degrees.
Remove from heat and stir in the baking soda, vanilla and butter-it will foam and possibly sputter, be careful. Immediately pour the mixture onto the prepared slab or sheet, spreading it wide as you pour. With a flexible metal spatula, spread the mixture as thinly as possible. Let cool for 5 minutes and run the spatula under the candy to prevent sticking.
Allow to cool completely, crack into small pieces and store in an airtight tin for one week. You may need to use the flexible metal spatula to remove the candy from the slab.

Grandma's Famous Pecan Pie
1 1/3 cup organic all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon Wholesome Sweeteners Fairtrade Organic Sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ cup (1/2 stick) chilled organic unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
2 Tablespoons ice water
1 cup Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Light Corn Syrup
1 cup Wholesome Sweeteners Fairtrade Organic Sugar
3 cage-free organic eggs, slightly beaten
2 Tablespoons organic unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
1 ¾ cup chopped organic pecans
To make the crust:
Mix the first three ingredients in a food processor. Add butter slowly, using the on/off switch until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Blend enough water to form moist clumps of dough. Remove dough and form into a ball, then flatten dough into a disk. Wrap with plastic wrap and chill for one hour. Roll dough on a floured work surface to a 13" round size. Transfer to a 9" pie pan. Trim and crimp the edges. Chill in freezer for 15 minutes.
To make the yummy pie filling:
Preheat the oven to 350° F. Whisk the first five ingredients in a large bowl until blended. Place organic pecans in the bottom of the pie shell. Pour the filling mixture into the pie shell.
Bake the pie until set or a knife inserted into the center of the pie come out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
