Can I send homemade sealed raspberry jam from Canada to Japan and New Zealand?

Some Japanese friends I've met here in Canada just love my mom's homemade raspberry jam. I think they even love it more than I do -- and I love it a lot.
They're back in Japan now, and one of them is in New Zealand, and they've asked for some jam of mine. So now I'm wondering, can I send homemade food from Canada to Japan and New Zealand? If I can, should I use Canada Post? Should I go with a priority courier instead? The package doesn't need to get there by New Year's Day, but it would be nice if it can.
The jam is sealed in small glass jars. The content is perishable, but as long as its sealed, it will take a long time before it rots. I also know glass is heavy, and I hope it won't break easily. I guess bubble wrap will become handy.
Any suggestions, with links, if possible, will be appreciated. Thanks!
