Sub for dark corn syrup in German potato salad?

Thanks4Food | Apr 6, 2013 11:55 AM

All ready to make my mother's favorite recipe for German potato salad but discovered that not only do I not have the dark corn syrup it calls for, I don't have ANY corn syrup (in case you were going to suggest molasses and light corn syrup).

Here are the ingredients (but I will halve the recipe):

12 slices bacon
1 cup sliced onion
1 cup sliced celery
1/4 cup dark corn syrup
3 T cider vinegar
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
3 lbs potatoes, cooked, peeled, sliced (6 cups)

You fry the bacon and pour off all but 2 T drippings, add onion and celery to cook till tender-crisp, then stir in all but the potatoes and bring to a boil for and boil 1 minute. Crumble the bacon, add to potatoes then pour dressing over the potatoes, toss to coat well.

Anything I can do in place of the corn syrup or do I have to give up and made a mayo-based salad?
