I understand where you are coming from, and you are correct in that this is a serious matter of concern. However, my statement was simply made in a light-hearted context as indicated by the little green man smiling at the end of it.

To be a little more serious and more concise, I followed the guidelines that were in a "Ball" book of canning recipes for a sauce that had similar ingredients and was proven safe. To add to that, I asked questions of, and then followed the advice of, people who have done canning of various sauces before. I am also lucky enough to work in a place where I have access to people that are a lot smarter than I am and have the knowhow, experience, and the equipment to test foods for safety. Turns out that my sauce recipe is acidic enough to be safely canned using the same hot water bath method as described in the “Ball” book, per my friendly peeps at the FDA.

I suppose that is why no one died.
