    Potatoes and parsnips are FREE on extra easy, so you dont need to syn them. They just are not a superfree food.

    So you can't use them towards your 1/3 superfree of each meal.

    They will be synned on a Original (Red) day though.

    Unless of course you mean she cooked them in oil and not frylight, in which case it will depend on how much oil she used. It is 2 syns per teaspoon of oil used.

    My father in law very generously gave us an actifry for Xmas and we do roast potatoes and parsnips ( no parboiling though) with appx 1/2 teaspoon of oil for the 2 of us and they are the best! I never thought I would ever say it but I am a complete convert from goosefat now. Absolutely delicious!
