    Last night for supper I had 227g baked apple (2 apples) and 113g of stewed blackberries for my B choice and I just wanted to say what a fab B choice this was!
    I've never had this before as a B and I had it with a big dollop of FF Fromage frais. It was absolutely lovely!

    I have been having ryvita, bread or cereal as my B choice and just thought I'd have something a bit different. I know some people would have this as free but there was a lot of cooked fruit and I don't think I would have enjoyed eating 2 apples and a bowl of blackberries uncooked as I did cooked.

    Just thought I'd share :D

    I haven't synned it because it's a B choice. Just like if you had bread as a B choice you wouldn't syn it.

    ooh now that is interesting ( I learn something everyday on here) I didn't know you could have cooked fruit as a B - I have to say that would be such a yummy pudding.

    There are lots of B choices which have cooked fruit - it was lovely and I'll have it again for sure! I still have lots of blackberries in the freezer :)

    Jaylou I also didn't realise you could have cooked fruit for hexb, I knew you could have tinned fruit.

    I'll definately give this a try, thank you x

    Yeah, i get that ya using it as a hex b. But you likened it to bread. With bread, you aint changing its natural form. Where as with the fruit, ya cooking it, and its releasing the sugar different to eating it which means u aint eating it in its natural state. Thats the bit i didnt get, i didnt make myself very clear. Sorry hun x

    Yes, all fruit is free if uncooked. I'm guessing that it's the cooking of it that makes it a 'b' choice, rather than just being free.
