Mason Jar Newbie

So I've never actually "canned" with mason jars, and I'm not even quite sure how it works, I just know you boil them, that's about it.

My question is this, I have a case of jars, that I just use for storing some things. I recently made some chicken broth, and put it in the mason jars so I could freeze it. When i put the broth in the jars, it was just shy of boiling temp. I noticed that while waiting for it to cool down a bit with the lids on, it sucked the little pressure button thingy in.

So my question, is could I store the chicken broth in the cabinet like I would a commercial broth? or should I still freeze it?

And if I should freeze it, is it possible, through "canning" to store it in the cabinet, or am I just dreaming??
