Making my own strawberry jam

Chris VR | Jun 20, 200509:44 PM

This is the year I try making jam for the first time. I've got a flat of strawberries coming from my CSA on Thursday, which gives me a few days to figure out just how the heck to do it. I've never made jam or canned anything before. I've found a few recipes for "freezer jam", and I do have a chest freezer, so I'm wondering if I should go in that direction, although I love the thought of tidy little jars of homemade jam in my pantry. My local grocery stores have canning sections, full of mysterious looking supplies.

I'm looking for recipes/resources/tips. Pointers towards previous threads or other websites discussing this topic are fine too. Ideally I'd like to do something really simple, with as little added sugar as possible. Lay it on me, hounds.
