I agree...You do not need a pressure canner for jams.
Just do the water bath method...
Here is a PDF of Ball's "Getting Started"
It has both of the methods explained and what you need to get started...

Have fun and if you have any questions, do post them for us to help you ...
PS I don't even process my jams..Hot Jars, Hot Liquid, they will seal themselves.
But you do what is best for you. try a jar un processed and see if it works for you.
