1. Peel carrots, cut in half lengthwise then into 4cm (1.5 inch) long

celery seed, chillies and sugar. Boil for 3 minutes and then add the
carrots and onions and boil for 5 minutes. Fill the warmed jars with hot
vegetables and top up with vinegar to within 1cm (half inch) of rim. Close
lids firmly.

Makes approx 3 litres.
