Canning Tomatoes Basic Question
Ok, I have searched on here and can't find my answer. I would like to can my tomatoes diced, in pints, in juice. Can I do that safely? Do I follow the processing time from the Ball Complete Book for Tomatoes Packed in Juice (85Min Pints or Quarts BWB)? Will I run into a density issue? The Ball book says to prepare tomatoes whole, halved, or quartered. I have some really large tomatoes that I would like to use, but not sure if I can use smaller pieces. I really like the size of the commercially canned diced tomatoes or petite diced tomatoes.
Thanks for your help!
