"Corn-free" Corn Syrup. 2 cups White Sugar, 3/4 cup Water, 1/4 tsp. Cream of Tartar (acts as a stabilizer), Dash of salt (1/8tsp or less) - Combine all ingredients in a heavy, large pan. Stir and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to a simmer and put cover on it for 3 minutes to get sugar crystals off the sides of the pan.  Uncover and cook until it reaches soft ball stage. Cool syrup and store in a covered container at room temperature. It will keep for about 2 months. Makes almost 2 cups.
