    Tomatoes are not recommended for the pressure canner. If you feel worried throw it out.

    We don't ever pressure can tomatoes either...WB is good enough for them. What veggie out there has more acid than a tomato? o_O

    We don't add lemon either. We actually use green tomatoes to add acid to other low acid foods for water bath canning.

    Last year we finally ate a few jars of tomatoes and tomato juice that was canned in WB canner in '07. Completely safe, very tasty and tasted like they were put up the day before.

    If you are worried, just rebatch them.....empty them into a pot, cook them awhile, jar 'em back up and can them again. But...I wouldn't be worried and I'd just heat and eat.

    Bee, I don't add lemon juice to my salsa that I water bath. Been canning it for years the way my grandma did. I'm still here! :p

    What I mean is it is not necessary-a water bath is fine for tomatoes. Pressure canner not needed but certainly can be used.
