Micro-waves, vegtable steamers and clean handling of
materoals.
Look into fractional sterilisation, its the process of allowing
the contams to germinate before inducing heat death, then repeating.

So its soak for 12 to 24 hours, heat to high temps using a
steamer or microwave , let site for 24 hours, reheat to high temps.
