High acid( pickles), High sugar ( preserves) are shelf stable at ambient temperature,as the storage medium does not allow bacterial growth.Saying that though,I do put pickled beetroot in the fridge once opened,as it stops oxidisation and the beetroot turning brown,yuk!

Mince is a bit tricky, but you can always flatten it out (hamburgers) or stir it around (mince proper)
Sausages are a nightmare though, the only way to check if they're cooked through is to split them and some people moan about that.
