I found this video on Cooking Up a Story that makes creating your own jam and preserving it actually look doable. Canning is something I haven't tried yet, and I don't know when I'm going to get around to it. But with strawberries in season right now and other berries on their way, I thought sharing this video of someone who does know how to do it would be helpful.
