I made a jalepeno/banana pepper relish from my garden two days ago and have since realized that I was supposed to sterilize the jar before doing this.
My fault for not researching enough at the beginning. Though I did submerge the jar full of relish in boiling water for 10 minutes. Would that not have killed all bacteria?
I am not planning on storing this for an extended period of time. I'm hoping to begin using it within the next few weeks.
Is the batch safe to eat, or can I eat it without worry?
