Few things are more satisfying than growing your own fruit and veg, to pick and take straight to the kitchen. But there can come a time, usually in late summer, when you’ve got more produce than you know what to do with.

Pickling chillies is great fun and enables you to enjoy home-grown chillies during winter. It’s also a perfect way to reduce waste.
