Default tomato juice

i have a question, i just took a bunch of tomatoes from the counter and cooked them down and made juice, i got 4 pints of juice, i added a tbls. of lemon juice and 1/4 teas. of canning salt to it. (the same as if i was going to pressure can it), NOW i'm NOT going to process it, poured boiling juice in sterile jars and put lid and top ring on jars and put in frig. when cooled down, now the question is ---how long you think these jars will last in frig. before going bad?---thanks---tom

Was that a table spoon per pint?
If so.
Way longer than you need them to.

Probably won't go bad if the lids sealed.

Not very long at my house! I usually drink a pint with breakfast 3 or 4 times a week. We put up 73 quarts of juice this year. Love that tomato juice.

In answer to your question, it'll probably last several weeks as long it is kept in the frig.

Would freezing the juice change the flavor?

You will be fine if you let it thaw first.
