Finally, the warm weather & sunshine has arrived. Mrs Darlington’s BBQ Relish is a fabulous accompaniment to any grilled meat. Alternatively, pour a jar of our BBQ relish over a joint of your favourite meat, cover and then cook on low (140 degs) for 4 hours. When the dish is cooked, use 2 forks to shred the meat. Serve the BBQ pulled meat in a brioche bun as shown,  or over a jacket potato.
