I canned about 10 cases of tomatoes with a group of friends this weekend.
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.
This won't be a problem at all -- the important thing is that the jars popped and sealed!
(My apologies for just now answering your question! I'm still learning how to use hubpages, and didn't see you question until a moment ago!)

Can I use fresh instead of canned tomatoes?I would like to use fresh tomatoes since I don't have canned. I have tomato sauce if that would help. It's a crock pot taco soup. Can I just cook them the same way I would make homemade spaghetti sauce?
