    Hey. Anyone have any idea on deep fried chip syns done at home from scratch? OH has broken out the deep far fryer from the back of the cupboard (git) and wants to make home made chips :(

    Would I syn them the same as:
    Basic/Non Branded Foods Potatoes, chips, frozen, straight cut, deep fried 28g

    2½ Syns on Extra Easy . Original 4 Syns . Green 2½ Syns

    - even though they are made from real potato, not frozen.

    I wouldn't even go near them! It's not just the syns but deep frying is seriously unhealthy and SW chips taste so much better anyway x

    I know :( I hate having to cook things in different ways I guess. Oh well, he can have deep fried ones, and I'll bung mine in the oven, and maybe pinch one of his :)

    Not really :D Thankfully, most stuff can be substituted (he has normal sausages, I usually have Eat Smart, extra lean mince, WM bread etc), but when it comes to separate meals, I did that before, and I ended up eating what my ex had, as I couldn't be bothered doing two separate! When he wants something I really can't have, we get a takeaway, then I can pick something totally different :)

    I miss deep fried jacket wedges, they were pretty ace :(

    You can also use a little bit of olive oil as a HExB on chips instead of frylight and it makes them much crispier, tis nice for a change now and again.
