Another canning question

I want to can tomatoes, I watched a Ball canning video, using the method of putting the pealed, cut tomatoes into the jar, then boil for 40 minutes for pints which i am using, then i watch the ball website recipe and they say 1:45 minutes for pints. Any help would be appreciated.

It looks to me as if the times depend on whether you're using the water bath method or a pressure canner. I would double-check the recipes you looked at to confirm.

I water bath and 40 minutes sounds about right. I also add the required citric acid.
