Important Caution: Do not to leave out the grated rind from 2 lemons. Safe canning requires a pH of under 4.6 and pumpkins are 5.0, as are carrots. For this reason, lemon, lemon rinds, or lime and lime rinds which have a pH of 2.2 and 2.0 respectively are usually added to bring the combined pH into the safety zone. Do not alter recipes unless you understand the significance of pH in a safely canned product.
