Should I Use Fresh or Frozen Fruit?

You can use either! If you are using frozen fruit, you may simply need to simmer the berries a smidgen longer.

Another Note About the Berries: You will need 6 cups in total. Feel free to use any combination that you wish. Ours is raspberries and blackberries, but, go with your favorite.

Do I Have to Use An Iron Skillet?

No. If you don’t have an iron skillet, any oven safe skillet will work. Stick with a 9-10 inch in size.
