i'll check this out later. The compresser on our freeze is going out so I may need to try and save it all at any time   frustrated

Great idea if your looking at not having electricity for a long time in warm weather. When I saw this I remembered a great item to help can outdoors. Have you heard of a Volcano Stove?  It would be perfect for this type of project. It's a good idea to do this even if you still have electric on as it would save your kitchen from heating up in the summer time during canning season. This video is the only thing I could find on Youtube describing how it works. It would be so worth the money and safer too for canning.

I'd be in trouble unless I could find a half dozen propane stoves and more pressure canners LOL  With three large freezers plus the fridge freezer, that's a LOT of food to can.

....and yes, she could can that lemon juice.  Lemon juice is often added to other foods to increase the acidity level, and it can be safely canned by itself.
