Making soup in a Ball enamel waterbath canner.

I bought the kit like all the beginners do. I need a huge pot for soup today and my 5 1/2 quart Le Creuset is on vacation (long story). Can I use the flimsy enamel coated 21 quart stockpot for canning??
If not, then just a puny 4 quart saucepan worth of soup on a snowy weekend sucks....Ann
You will probably need to really watch the heat since the pot is thin.
A heat diffuser helps. Depending on the soup, perhaps you can transfer it to the oven - less chance of scorching.
as long as it doesn't get to a prolonged boil, i think you should be ok. most soups do fine simmering anyway.
Sure, I use my big enamel pot for turkey stock, since it's big enough to take the whole carcase.
