    Place your Saucier over medium heat and pour in the berries and lemon juice. Sprinkle ½ cup sugar over top and stir to combine.


    Stir occasionally until the berries begin to break down. This should take about 10 minutes. Make sure you are watching the berries so that they don’t scorch. Reduce the heat to medium-low if needed.


    While the berry mixture is simmering, whisk together the remaining ¼ cup of sugar and pectin in a small bowl. Whisk into the berries and bring everything back up to a simmer.


    When the  mixture begins to thicken, remove it from heat and whisk in the malic acid. Taste and add more malic acid if needed.


    Decant into mason jars or deli containers and let cool before putting on the lids. Store in the fridge for up to a month.
