I was given a bag full of enormous beetroot, and had to do this about five times. I just poured enough hot vinegar liquid to cover the beetroot; poured the rest into a large measuring jug, put the bowl Closed lidback onto the base, pushed the scale button, poured the hot vinegar liquid back into the bowlClosed lid. then I topped up to the 1200ml again. Put another slug of vinegar, a few more peppercorns, and another teaspoon of sugar in each time.

With the jars, if the lid doesn't pop/seal tight, you will need to freeze the filled jars, or sterilise the cooktop way.
