I agree that if you decide to do this, you will have to reheat the jam as well as sterilising the new jars.  I’ve never done it myself though, so not sure how well it would work out.

Ditto @clumsylawyer. You’ll need to reheat the jam, sterilize your clean jars, fill them up and then water bath process them. Have you done Home canning before? If not, foodinjars.com has a good list of instructions. Good luck! 🙂

Here’s two great tutorials on how to make raspberry jam and properly seal and sterilize the jars!

It’s important not to just double the recipes for larger amounts of jam – it won’t set properly! Just do one batch at a time. 🙂

It also might be a good idea to pick up a home canning set like this: http://www.amazon.com/Back-Basics-286-5-Piece-Canning/dp/B0002BF1WY

The jar lifter and funnel are especially helpful! (You could do it without the funnel, but I think the jar lifter is pretty essential to lift the sealed cans from the boiling waterbath.)
