Syns for homemade jams, sauces etc???

Hi . I have a zillion jars of jams, chutneys, jellies, sauces etc that I make every summer to see us through winter. It can be -34 degrees over here - brrr!

How on earth can I work out the syns? They're obviously all made with cooked fruit, veg, sugar......... What would you think would be a reasonable guess on, say, 1 tbsp jam on my toast? I never spread it thickly. Tbsp of chutney on a sandwich? One jar (jam jar size) of plum or BBQ or rhubarb sauce to go into a stir fry for two people?

Probably impossible to answer but they really have to be eaten!!! Just wondered what the general consensus of opinion would be. Thanks

1 tbsp of sugar is 3 Syns, and 100g of cooked/puréed fruit is anywhere between 1.5 Syns to 3 Syns, depending on the fruit.

A tbsp of your average jam is 2 Syns (for a full sugar one)
Tbsp of average mango chutney is 2 Syns, as is a tbsp of average caramelised onion chutney.
Tomato & vegetable is 1.5 Syns per tbsp

Does that help?

sarahc you are wonderful! That's a great help - it certainly gives me a base now to work from because I was clueless before. I try to overestimate my syns but I didn't know where to start. Now I can have my jam on toast!
