Saskatoon Berry Pie Recipe

Moving to Saskatoon has taught me many things but one of them is that for those of us around here, nothing compares to a slice of Saskatoon berry pie.  It is the ultimate summer food.  

Saskatoon Berry Pie RecipeIngredients (Filling)

  • 3 1/2 cups Saskatoon berries
  • 1/2 cup water

Ingredients (Pastry)

  • 2 cups pastry flour
  • 1 tsp salt

Pie Filling:

  1. Cook berries in water until boiling. Reduce water if using frozen berries. Add mixed cornstarch and sugar and boil until clear, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add lemon juice, butter and almond extract. Cool. Use as a filling for single or double crust pie, tarts, or on a cheesecake.

Pastry:
