Modus (2009) Rear-Drum Ratchet Adjustment

Fitted new Bosch shoes (and pads) and enjoying better stopping power. Cleaned up rear-drum ratchets but difficult to adjust. Later read they are supposed to be self-adjusting by either:

a) Reversing and applying footbrake.

b) Reversing and applying handbrake.

Not sure which. Any ideas, or best done directly on the ratchet again, once the shoes have bedded-in? Thanks.
Currently in Trevor2522's garage:
Renault Modus (Short Wheelbase), 1.5 dCi Diesel, Dynamique, Quickshift (Robotised Manual Gearbox), 2009, 27,000 miles.
