In 1938, a new Karo syrup was introduced.. the green label, For Waffles syrup with maple flavor. I have to say that I never knew this syrup existed! Anyone out there remember using this? I like how it was called "For Waffles" rather than Pancake Syrup.
According to the Karo Syrup website, the 1930s also saw the introduction of, to me, the most famous and basic Karo Syrup recipe...Pecan Pie! Hmm! This booklet includes a Peanut Pie recipe...with a little note that Pecans or shredded coconut may be substituted for the peanuts!
This sticky-bun recipe looks really good...no yeast! I was going to make this yesterday but then my son got whiff of the fact that there was no chocolate involved. :)
This past week, I read an article in the New York Times about how sugar is making a "comeback" as a natural, healthful ingredient against high-fructose corn syrup. Pizza Hut has "the Natural" pizza, Pepsi has "Pepsi Natural" and there has been a bit of a run on Kosher for Passover Coca-Cola because it is made with sugar and not corn syrup. Even in these times, you can sometimes get a chuckle from a newspaper!
