      Hi Jean

      What you do to fill the jars is use a funnel the size of the

      top of the jar. And then you would fill the jar with the relish.

      Hi Wendy

      You should cook the relish.

      for 10 minutes.

      I am about to use your recipe to use up some of the large number of cucumbers which our garden has flooded us with.

      Can you confirm that the mixture is not cooked at any stage please?

      You should add brown sugar and vinegar after you drain the cold water off the vegetables. When you add the spices.
