Traditional Saskatoon Berry Pie

A warm and light piece of traditional Canadian Saskatoon berry pie is a regional trademark, especially when accompanied by a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream on the side.

It is made with Saskatoon berries, native to Western Canada, which grow from the Plains to the coast of British Columbia.

The pie is made from flour, pie pastry, butter, eggs, and Saskatoon berries (similar to blueberries, but harder and with smaller seeds, drier and earthier in flavor).

 

 

RECIPE INGREDIENTS

4 cups Frozen Saskatoon berries

1 cup water

3/4 cup white granulated sugar

31/2 tablespoon cornstarch

1 teaspoon almond extract

1 teaspooon fresh lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon milk

 

For Pie:

1 unbaked Pie Shell

11/2 tablespoon milk

1 teaspoon white granulated sugar

 

 

DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO PREPARE TRADITIONAL SASKATOON BERRY PIE

Over medium heat, add all sauce ingredients to a medium saucepan and cook, stirring frequently.( if using fresh berries, add an additional ¼ cup of water)

Let the berries simmer until soft and the mixture is thickened for about 15 minutes.The mixture will be as thick as jam when it’s ready. Remove from heat and cool.

 

For Pie:

Pour into unbaked pie shell and cover with top crust (you can use a store-bought pie shell). Add top crust, then trim, using a paring knife or kitchen shears. Pleat with a fork to seal edges.
