There is probably only one way to find out, purplegoanna and that is do it and see what happens. You would certainly need to sterilise the container and lid and I think it would still need to be kept in the fridge.

Perhaps you could try dividing it into quantities suitable for your family and freezing it instead.

cant really justify the waste just to see what happens, im more worried that the reason he hasnt mentioned bottling it is a food poisoning risk but i cant see why as its very similiar to a relish recipe... all my jars & lids get washed in hot soapy water then sterilized in the oven.

the only thing i can see is that the brown sugar and cider vinegar may ferment after 4 weeks?
