Do you can? Did your grandmother? Some people avoid the hot, old-fashioned way of doing it by microwaving now. If you don't mind cheating a little, you might try it. You can make a nice batch of preserves by slicing strawberries, covering them with sugar, adding some citrus rind and microwaving it till it's the right consistency and taste you desire.

Doing it this way is not only quicker, but you also don't need to add water either. You can store the finished product in the fridge. If you don't finish it all up (and that is an IF), consider storing the rest in plastic zippered bags in the freezer. Later, you can use it on sandwiches or as a topping for ice cream. Find strawberries among our berry plants.
