Has anyone canned lemon juice with a hot water bath method?

Every February thru April I drive to Phoenix, Arizona and pick organic lemons, grapefruit and tangerines.  I juice them and load my car with around 40 gallons of various juice and drive home to Montana as fast as I can.  I visit my grandson while I am there too.  I canned some grapefruit juice and it turned out ok.  Of course it was consumed within a 3 month period so I don't know if it stays fresh and doesn't brown in the jar.

I usually freeze the lemon juice for use in recipes etc...but I would rather can it if possible.  Any thoughts or experience with this?

Hi, Misty. I just reposted your question to HOMEGROWN's Facebook page. Fingers crossed it'll get a few more eyeballs (and comments) there. Curious to hear people's thoughts!
