Recipe by Dominique353

Another Saskatoon berry recipe that 'Zaar will be holding onto for me! Sounds tasty and I will be making this when the Saskatoons are in season again next summer. Found in the Summer 2005 issue of Canadian Gardening.

This is a very good scone recipe. It was not quite as sweet as I like so next time I will just add a little more brown sugar...not much. The texture was scone like. The slight orange flavor was wonderful. I did not have nor could I find the berries required so I used blueberrys which were great.I made this for the october PAC11.Thanks for your 3 recipes
