    How have I gone through my entire life not knowing that balsamic vinegar was full of sugar? Was going to make a recipe using a whole bottle of it - its 18½ bloddy Syns!!! Dammit!

    Noooooo, balsamic vinegar is free. Isn't it? Please tell me it is!!
    Balsamic dressing isn't but vinegar, all varieties is supposed to be free.

    I didn't know this either! I sprinkle it very liberally on my salad and don't count any syns for it, but with a relatively small amount it probably doesn't matter that much (hopefully!)

    Mine doesn't have sugar but it does have "grape must"???
    Thing is, it's 20 calories per tablespoon so 1 syn if you equate it to the likes of ketchup.
    Hmm, got me thinking now!

    Oh, OK if everyone uses it as free then I will too! :D Phew! Had me panicking there! :eek:

    I tried to look it up but it said it didn't know what it was so I put it through the calculator. Its 74kcal per 100g and the bottle is 500ml. p=0.3, f=0, c=18.2

    I guess you're not going to eat that much of it at once even if the recipe does add up to that much? I was going to make some chutney so it'd only be a coupla tablespoons at a time or summat? Ah 'twill be fine Im sure, I just cant believe I never knew it had sugar in :confused:
