Syn value frozen vs syn value cooked?
Bit of help required - if anyone knows, please? I'm going to make pasta sauce tonight with some chorizo in it.
Looking it up, it's 12 syns per 100g on a green day, which is fine, as I'll be splitting the sauce into 2 or 3 portions.
BUT - the chorizio I've got is pre-chopped into chunks and it's sitting in my freezer at the moment. How do I know how much to take out that will equal 100g after it's defrosted / cooked?
I usually just bung it straight in the pan and it defrosts as it cooks because it's chopped up. I know freezers dry food out so I suspect that 100g of frozen chorizo is going to weigh more when it's cooked.
:sigh: I'm probably overthinking this, but I'd welcome any help anyone has!
