    I'm hoping someone can help me out. I've picked up a Quorn biryani recipe and it has dried apricots in it and I would quite like to try it with them in. But how do I syn them? Is it just the syns for however many I use or are there extra syns for cooking them as well? :confused:

    They have their own syn value and you count it as that. They don't gain more syns in cooking. Or you can have 71g dried apricots as a HEB on a green day!
