    If I pour hot custard over a freshly chopped bannana is the bannana still free or does this constitute cooking it? Thought I better check because I'm trying to justify having gravy tonight and checking how many syns I've got lef haha!

    I'd still count the banana as FREE.

    You haven't cooked it, or done anything with it in any way. It would be the same as having a banana, and then a bowl of custard seperately.

    Just been reading this post and I was wondering ... Does fruit have a syn value if it's cooked ? I like apples done in the microwave with cinnamon on them so I hope it doesn't change ?

    It's supposed to be synned, yes.
    Although I must admit, I'm quite 'naughty' - I never syn it. For example, I like Stewed Rhubard (with sweetener not sugar) and I never Syn this.

    You could always used the stewed rhubarb as a hexb choice - you get quite a lot, so you could even have a 1/2 hexb's worth and still have an alpen light/slice of bread etc

    Fruit in its raw state is free if fresh or frozen unsweetened. Fruit cooked, pureed or tinned is synned. The syn value is in your basic syn value list.

    Oh no ! So does that mean when I chop them up and put them in my blender to make a fruit smoothie it would be turned into syns ?

    that is exactly why it is syns.

    30 secs to drink in a smoothie, but think how long it would of taken to eat it all in its raw form, with all the chewing etc that would be of been involved

    It confuses me about cooking fruit and it being synned, seen as on the SW website there is a recipe for baked apples that says it is free? :(

    It's because cooked fruit can be counted as a HEX.

    Thanks guys. That's the one. I was obviously being rather dumb with that one, it is a bit misleading when it says it is completely free, but anyway I used it the first day I was doing it and didn't realise I had to have healthy extras anyway so it would have counted towards one of them! I didn't have the mincemeat anyway just warmed up apple with sprinkled cinnamon. Think i've got the hang of it now though. Thanks for clearing it up x
