Note: the best way to do this is have everything you need ready to go, including your clean jars, lids pectin, etc. I sterilize my jars and bands in the dishwasher. Pour boiling water over your lids as you get closer to needing them and let them sit. I use tongs to pick them up.
For comparison purposes, regular Jam you get at the grocery store has equal amounts of sugar as it does fruit.
