Will it grow, maybe... but probably not. Shold you eat it if it does grow. No way.

90 minutes with tight fitting lid, the steam creates the heat. 30 minutes is very short, I'd be surprised if you had any jars successfully colonize without a contam

An optimist is never pleasantly surprised.

a basic non lethal mold

Even non-lethal molds can make you sick enough to wish you were dead. By the way, how do you know what kind of mold you have? Did you culture it, observe its growing parameters, look at it under the microscope, identify that size and shape of its spores, and verify what you found with a reference sample? Just because you see a nice green mold growing doesn't mean that it is trich, for example.

Would you leave a nice fresh ham and cheese sandwich out on in the open on the kitchen counter top for two or three days and then come back and eat it?

Just another spore in the wind.
