I don't doubt that there is a lot of stuff cheaper here in Oz, but most of the stuff I buy it's way cheaper through Amazon.

That is kind of funny about the US being cheaper. I order my pet meds from Australia because I can get the same products cheaper there.
I agree with the others that you do not need to pressure can jams and jellies.

Australia.

The silliest thing is the one advertised here is the exact same thing I bought at Amazon. I don't mind people making a bit of a profit but out and out thievery is something I just don't understand.

I'm the same Patti, I just cover jams while they are still hot and they vacuum seal themselves.

If the fruits have a reasonable acid content you should be fine with the water bath preserving.

I'm patiently waiting for my pressure canner to come from Amazon so I can can veggies etc. Believe it or not it's cheaper to buy it from the US and get it posted here to Australia than to buy it here.

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...
Here's the link...

Canning.pdf

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.

I assume you mean the pressure cooker part? I never have used a pressure cooker. I just use a big pot, tongs and go that route. As long as the water covers the lids by a good inch or two and boil/process for like 15 minutes or so...

I really want to can soon. I'd like to do a strawberry rhubarb recipe I found. I do not have a pressure cooker. Has anyone done tis before?
