I haven't made them but am also interested in finding a corn-syrup-free recipe. I think there's some science that has to do with adding the corn syrup and the fluffiness but that said, I did find the following recipe:

http://www.food.com/recipe/homemade-marshmallows-no-corn-syrup-384069

One thing though, it does call for using powdered sugar to dust the pan. I think powdered sugar has cornstarch in it, definitely check the box. So, if you are sensitive to cornstarch, you would have to find an alternative or use the blender and pulverize some sugar so it's like powdered sugar so the marshmallow mixture doesn't stick to the pan.

If you end up trying the recipe, please do report back. I am on a diet right now (yeah, one of the new year's resolutions...) so I don't dare make them. I'd probably eat all the mistakes :rolleyes:

I just took a look at this recipe and it looks like it's almost the same as one my sister tried, but the one she made called for Agave instead of sugar. She said they turned out really good and it was an easy recipe to make.

When I talk to her this week I'll try to remember and ask her where she got the recipe and I'll post it as soon as I can.

She wasn't using sugar at the time she made them and I think she used shredded coconut to make them not stick to the pan.

I haven't tried making marshmallows yet, but wanted to add that I did find a corn-free powdered sugar at Whole Foods. It is their 365 Brand - Organic Powdered Sugar that contains tapioca starch instead of corn starch.

Yes, Thanks for this :)

I have found cornstarch-free powdered sugar that uses tapioca instead. The brand is Wholesome Sweeteners. I am lucky that our local healthfood staore carries it.
