substitute for fruit fresh

I've got to can peaches tonight and don't have any fruit fresh. I know I can use lemon juice, but how much? Anyone with a quick answer??? Thanks!

A few teaspoons in a gallon of water. Salt water will also keep them from browning.

You can also use disolvable vitamin C tablets - I usually use 2 of the kid's orange flavored ones to a big bowl of water - probably a gallon size.
