Saskatoon Berry Pie

Let’s talk all about the famous Saskatoon berry! These are a favourite berry of the summer for my family and they grow native in Alberta, Canada. They are also referred to as Serviceberries or Juneberries and although these little guys may look like a blueberry the favour is much different, slightly tarter, and they contain eatable seeds. No worries though if you aren't able to get your hands on these berries, you can still substitute the recipes for blueberries. I hope you enjoy this recipe for Saskatoon Berry Pie. Make sure you also check out this delicious Rhubarb galette.

Where to Find Saskatoon Berries

Native to Canada, the Saskatoon berry can be found throughout North America! Saskatoon berries grow abundantly in the wild and can be found in the prairies, along river banks, the edges of lakes and even throughout the mountains! 

Saskatoon Berry Flavour

Along these yummy berries look a lot like their cousin the blueberry, but the flavour is very different. The blueberry is sweet and can have a soft texture at times, the Saskatoon berry has a much earthier, burst of flavour and is generally a firm texture. Saskatoons also have delicious edible seeds inside that add to the uniqueness of this berry.

    1. Is there a place us Americans can purchase these berries? I’d love to try them.

      • I have been able to purchase mine at the local CO-OP grocery store in the frozen foods before but I’m not sure about the US. You could maybe ask where you shop for groceries? They are so delicious.
