I learned by doing. Somethings worked and somethings didn't. I still have a problem with canning beans. So, I just freeze them. Start with a batch of jam. Borrow a book from the library or try a web site for help. Once you do your first canning you are hooked and there is nothing better than fresh homemade jam. We never by jam unless it is something that we don't grow here like apricots. My dh likes marmalade, my dd likes strawberry and raspberry, my ds likes blueberry and apple and I can never have enough blackberry jam. If you have a loaf of homemade bread that is still warm from the oven to spread your jam on nothing can compare to that for the rest of the day. Your family starts to brag to the world about how good of a cook their Mom is. My dd likes to bring friends over for homemade waffles with homemade strawberry or apple preserves. They are always a hit. I'm getting hungry now I think I'll have some toast.:p
