Default fruit mead - need help

Can someone help me out? How much raspberry puree do I add to a 3 gallon batch of standard mead? When do I add it? Any other details that would be helpful to know?

Two 49fl oz cans from vintners harvest would work. Put one in the primary with honey and after fermentation completes and you rack for the first time off the lees then add the second can.
