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.

Interested in canning jam but feel overwhelmed by the enormity of the process? This video shows you how to make a small batch without special equipment.
