    Made this last night and it's scrummy. It's from a very old Slimming World magazine, but I don't think the syns have changed.
    It's listed as:
    Original 3 sins (that's how old the mag is lol)
    Green 9 (add 6 syns if not using lamb as a hexb)
    Of course Extra Easy didn't exist then!

    As far as I can make out, the only thing to syn on red and EE are the apricots @ 2.5 syns per 28g, so I calculate the recipe to still be the same syns.

    Or you could use part of a hexb serving of apricots.

    Just beware it takes 2 hours to cook on the hob - could be adapted for a slow cooker though, I suppose.

    Ingredients:
    1 onion
    2 yellow peppers (though I used 1 red and 1 green and it was fine)
    2 garlic cloves
    1lb 8oz (681g) lamb
    1 tsp ground ginger
    2 tsp cinnamon
    400g tin tomatoes
    2 Tablespoons sweetener
    1 pint (568ml) chicken stock
    5oz (142g) dried apricots
    Salt & freshly ground pepper
    Fresh coriander

    Method:
    Roughly chop the onion and pepper. Chop the garlic and cut the lamb into strips. Place in a large pan with the ginger, cinnamon, tomaties, sweetener & stock. Bring to the boil and simmer for an hour and a half.

    Add the apricots, season and simmer for a further 20 minutes.

    Serve garnished with chopped coriander

    Sorry to say but if you cook the apricots you have to syn them or use them as a heallthy B :( the book says this:

    You can have 454g fresh apricots stewed as a HeB or 142g dried apricots, stewed,

    Thanks silvermaneuk. Both I and jo1 don't believe in synning cooked fruit - I know SW say you should and I agree that's ok for stewed apples etc. where you'd eat loads in one go, whereas uncooked you'd struggle to eat the same quantity. But I often add fruit, such as a mango, to a curry and don't count it as syns. Hasn't done me any harm! Everything in moderation I say!

    No problem LF, I have to say I find it weird myself, but my consultant is a stickler for the rules lol
