You can make jam in a pasta pot with no more than a wooden spoon and a pair of kitchen tongs, but that’s not much fun more than once. Here’s a quick rundown of the basic tools you need to get started:

1. Shallow and wide 6-quart pot
2. Jam funnel
3. Jar lifting tongs
4. Silicone or wooden spatula
5. At least two bowls: one 8-cup and one 4-cup
6. Sharp knife and cutting board
7. Canning lids and rings
8. 8 oz canning jars
