One more thing I thought of as I was reading over this thread again. There are probably several ladies in your neighborhood or church that can or used to that would be more than willing to help you get started.
My mother never let us help, her mother had a friend that was severly burned and scarred when one of the old pressure canners blue up (we're talking back in the 40s). Mom was always scared we'd get burned. Of course canners are much safer now but still follow the directions carefully.
Anyway, when I decided I wanted to start one of my friends mothers helped me a great deal. She answered questions, gave me advice on what to buy, etc.
Ask around at church or the library, or even your extension office. Many people with great talents are out there wishing they could share them.
