When canning strawberries in light syrup, do you also add lemon juice to each jar?
I canned several pounds of strawberries today, using grandma's cold method ( cleaned and washed fruit, added to clean jars, added sugar to each jar and topped with water; then tightened the jars and processed in a water bath). I wondered whether or not I should also add a little ( maybe a teaspoon) of lemon juice to each 20oz. jar as well?
