Can't something else be used instead of Corn Syrup. I am so against corn syrup. It is one of the factors that help cause diabetes. Moderator comment: Yes you could substitute any sweetener of choice.

THis was the first Davita recipe I tried. It was absolutely awful. It tasted like vinegar and mustard.
