Rinse & drain fresh berries, but frozen berries are ready to go.
Place the berries in a medium to large saucepan over medium heat. Combine sugar, cornstarch & salt & pour it over the berries. Mix well & add the lemon juice.
Bring the mixture to a simmer & cook 5-10 minutes until desired thickness.
Transfer to a bowl & let the filling cool to room temperature.
