Jars - Use jars which are free from cracks, chips or flaws – the best sizes to use are 450g/1lb although 1kg/2lb jars can be successfully used for pickling fruit/vegetables.  Prepare the jars by washing well in warm soapy water and rinsing thoroughly. Dry the jars in a cool oven (140C, 275F, Gas Mark 1).  Fill whilst still warm to prevent the jars from cracking when the hot filling is added.


Filling and covering the jars –  Fill to within 1cm/ ½ inch of the top.  Whilst still hot,  cover with a waxed disc (wax side down) ,  immediately place a cellophane disc over the top then cover with a screw top lid.


Storage – Store in a cool dark place for 2-3 months before consuming.
