Hi, I do my diced tomatoes in the over every year.
I de skin and deseed them, dice and put into hot jars.
OOPS. preheat oven at 210F first.
Boil a large pan with plain water. When a jar is filled with tomatoes, ladle in the hot water to 1/2" of top, get rid of air bubbles, clean rims, put on 2 pc lids and tighten.
As you get the jars filled and topped, place in oven so they are not touching.
When you are all done filling jars and putting them in the oven, close oven and "bake" for 1 hour. Turn oven off and DO NOT OPEN OVEN OR THE JARS WILL CRACK for 1 more hour at least. When oven cooled, you can take out the jars.
DO SEE THE COMPLETE RECIPE IN THE RECIPE BOX THREAD.
I only do my diced tomatoes this was and I've never tried anything else.
As far as tomato juice, sauce, stewed tomatoes etc. I never hot water bath them...
Hot jars, Hot Sauce/Juice. They will seal on their own. Same with jellies and jams, pickles...Anything acid.
