If you can manage to maintain the seal you may just loose a little quality without them completely spoiling. Of course, if you're using glass canning jars, you'd have to keep them from shattering. I've had it happen before. The texture of veggies changes if they freeze/thaw but AFAIK, they don't loose any nutritional value.

I prevent temp extremes with my canned goods. As was already mentioned, glass jars will crack or shatter sometimes, due to the expansion of the liquid when they freeze.

The shelves in my laundry room only hold a few items for laundry. The rest of the space is taken up with canned goods, as well as clean jars that are empty! :thumbup1gif:

I understand. My laundry room is off of my living area, so won't freeze as long as the fire is going, although it will get a little cooler than the living area. I'd be worried about plumbing freezing in your house if I were faced with that situation too often.
