I put up two quarts of fresh tomatoes for sauce yesterday. They were in the hot water bath for 45 minutes. This morning they are cold & I thought ready for the cupboard. I notice many air bubbles when I turn the jars over Should this be of a concern for my storing & eating them later on?

  • That's the right amount of processing time for quart jars of tomatoes; could just be the fruits were a little less juicy than normal so the bubbles weren't able to rise. Watch for bloating and smell carefully before eating just in case, though. – goblinbox Aug 28 '15 at 2:46
  • ok, thank you--will be careful when I open one but tomatoes seem very juicy – Nancy Aug 28 '15 at 20:26
