Reidl was right about some of todays tomato varieties are lower in acid and adding vinegar or lemon juice is recommended . I have used lemon juice without noticing the taste in the tomato juice.

I'm not sure where you live, but here in IA we have county extention offices. They have all of the current information on safest methods to can or preserve food.

It is also important to inspect your jar of canned juice before using it. Always make sure the seal is still good. Look at the jar for an off color and always smell the juice after opening. If you ever have any doubts DO NOT use it.

I have been canning for 25 years without problems.

Good Luck
