I would put the fruit in a Ziploc bag, partial seal it leaving a small opening for a straw. Insert straw and suck out the air. Quickly remove straw and close the bag completely.

In order to vacuum seal in jar, you will either need a container that has an air valve that can hook up to a vacuum pump; a vacuum chamber; or FoodSaver jar sealer.

I do this all the time with baggies, but you really don't need the straw, and you can close up faster without it.
