Saskatoon Pie Filling

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Martina

Saskatoons grow wild where we live. This recipe could probably be used for blueberries as well. Use 1 quart of filling for a double crust pie. If you choose to can the berries in pint jars, it makes a great cheesecake topping.

I was going to submit my pie filling recipe and found yours. Mine is very similar except I use 3/4 of a cup of lemon juice. I have tried it on cheesecake and it is amazing. Also very good over a plain white cake. We actually had it for our wedding dessert over Almost French Pastry (Cracker Dessert). Amazing!! To switch the flavor a bit, I have added almond extract to it and it is very good too.
