As a resident of Saskatoon Saskatchewan I've made and eaten saskatoon pie many times. This recipe is excellent. Simmering the berries softened them and made the flavors blend together nicely taking away a bit of the berry's tartness. It also had a nice texture not too runny when served warm. Read More

I just finished making this pie and the filling only filled half of my 9inch pie plate. I was not happy with the amount. Read More

My grandmother would have been so pleased! I picked Saskatoon berries all night last night and wondered if I'd ever find a recipe that would make a good pie. Well... this is it! I would have give this a 5-star rating, but determined that the recipe was was improved just a touch by adding 1 tbsp. of cinnamon to 5 cups of Saskatoons. Absolutely delicious and ridiculously easy to make. Bravo! Read More

While on a hunting trip in Northern Alberta my husband brought home saskatoon berries that was given to him by the farmers wife which they had picked and froze. I made this pie today and it is the BEST pie that we ever ate. I did not cook the berries first and it gave the pie a very slightly berry crunch which made it extra flavorful. All I can say is that I wish we had more saskatoon berries in our freezer for more pies. Truly a wonderful and delightful pie. Read More

Found these berries on the property I was renting so I decided to be a domestic diva and make some pies. It was so good we did not mind smiling with bluish cast teeth for the rest of the night. And my guests asked to bring some home with them. Diva I am! Read More

Great recipe! I thought that there may be to much sugar but it turned out just the right sweetness for our taste. I added a small amount of cornstarch to thicken up the liquid when simmering it and that seemed to work great... Highly recommended recipe! Read More

I have picked my share of Saskatoons as a child but the aunts were always in charge of the pie. I used this recipe to bake my first pie (ever) and it got rave reviews. They have officially handed the torch down to me. I followed the recipe except added some corn starch at the end as per previous review. Already have two more in the oven. Super easy! Read More
