Another thing my dad also loves is Saskatoon berries. They are usually ready just before his birthday and my mom will often make him a pie to celebrate. I couldn't believe it when I found a TON of Saskatoon berry bushes all over our new property! I've made a couple of pies and some jam, too! I was able to use a recipe with honey instead of sugar - yum! I put a Saskatoon berry beside a blueberry in one of the pictures below to show the size difference. One batch of jam I ran out of Saskatoon berries so I made it half and half. Here's the simple yummy recipe:
Saskatoon Berry Jam
3 1/2 cups Saskatoon berries
1 tsp. Cinnamon
2/3 cup honey
1/2 lemon, juice of
Pour washed berries into a saucepan and mash most of the berries. Add the cinnamon, honey, and lemon juice and stir to combine. Gently bring to a boil. Cook, stirring often for about 10 minutes until the jam thickens. Remove from heat and pour into hot jars. Process in a hot water bath for 10 minutes.
