Saskatoon Berry Pie
If you are from the Canadian Prairies you will be familiar with Saskatoons - sweet, purple berries. As a child my family would head out with pails to our secret patch of wild Saskatoons and return with purple tongues and lips and pails of berries. Although they are wonderful picked right from the bush, my absolute favourite dessert is my Moms Saskatoon pie.
