As long as it is canned and sealed properly, it can just go on a pantry shelf, like others have said.

The site that Dober shared is wonderful, though the web design may look a little busy. lol! Definitely worth the read.

Be sure to boil the jars with jam how the directions say....that cooking under pressure is everything when talking about storing and keeping the jam for quite a while without spoilage. I remember making jam back when I lived in Idaho. I used my own raspberries. It was yummy. I even gave it away for extra Xmas presents. You just gave me a little incentive to make some again. I still have tons of Mason jars...just need to get some fruit or berries. It is a pretty fun project. Good luck!

A long time ago, I made freezer jam. It's really, really good. I think almost better than the kind you cook. But you must store it in the freezer so it's a little risky if the power goes out for a long time...you could lose it. But it tastes so fresh and good. And it's super easy!
