You can get the potatoes in 1kg packs or loose, and they’re ideal for this Syn Free Pea, Pickle and Bacon Potato Salad. You can also steam, roast or even bake them.

I actually think they taste far better with their skins on, so there’s no fussing with preparing them. They’re available in Sainsbury’s until the end of August.

We only use a dash of hot sauce, so as we used so little (less than 1/4 of a tsp then we’re not going to Syn it. Hot Sauce is roughly 1 Syn per 3 tbsp depending on the brand that you use.

What is Pickle juice?

It’s the liquid from a jar of pickles! You can use which ever pickle juice you like whether it be pickled onions, pickled gherkins (my favourite!), picked beetroot, pickled cabbage, or even pickled garlic!

    1. Hi Leah
      We use Franks Hot Sauce, which is 1 Syn per tbsp. As we’ve only added a dash, the Syn value is negligible. Hope this helps.

    1. Hi Sarah,

      The peas need to be defrosted before using them in this recipe – there is no need to boil them as long as they are thawed as they get cooked prior to freezing.

      Hope that helps!
