    If you were having it on a green day you would only be using syns for the stock and for the sweet chilli if you used it. I cant get on syns online anymore as I have left SW but if you check on syns online it should not be that many syns probably a few at the most for the whole lot

    Anything you do with a conventional potato you can do with a sweet potato.

    Yes, they are free on green. On the SW online diary you'll find them as "yams".
