Hi there,

I'm planning to make chilli oil for sale and am worried about botulism and bacteria growth.

I sterlise jam jars at home and in terms of recipe I'm using fresh garlic and onions (these I fry off until there's no water content) and crushed chilli flakes. Is this safe ? Thanks

no, it's not. Contact your food department for more details. You'll need to acidify your garlic, onions and chilis for one thing. pH is critical to preventing botulism. There is also often a pressure temperature process.
