Hi Buster, I canned about 10 cases of tomatoes with a group of friends this weekend. We've...

been doing it for the last 5 years. We do put them in a water bath but this year, the person timing the water bath only kept them in for approximately 25 -30 minutes. The water was at the boiling point for each batch. We clean, chop and cook the tomatoes until they come to a full boil as well before putting them into the jars. My concern is that we usually boil the jars in the water bath for a full 45 minutes. Will the shorter time in the water be of concern. Every jar popped and sealed. Need your opinion even though your recipe does not include a water bath. Thanks, Judy
