Hoping someone may be able to help.

I want to develop a range of vegetarian and vegan pates which will be packed into glass jars and need a long shelf-life, but don't want to use artificial preservatives, what does anyone suggest - perhaps in-jar pasteurisation? I know the pH and aW will be key as well, in conjunction with raw material quality and cooking temperatures - also hot filling and inverting the jars to "sterilize" the head-space would help I guess.

Any thoughts or comments would be appreciated.
