The acidity of different varieties of tomatoes varies greatly, therefore the United States Department of Agriculture now recommends adding bottledlemon juice to assure a safe product. "The addition of two tablespoons per quart or one tablespoon per pint of bottled lemon juice is an important safeguard, but it doesn't eliminate the need for following other safe canning procedures as well," said Sylvia Treitman, home economist for the Michigan State University Extension ~ Oakland County. Processing times for canning omatoes need to be followed carefully, advises Sylvia. If you haven't canned for several years, it is advised that you get updated canning information.
