Today is my 6th wedding anniversary and since my husband LOVES both Saskatoon berries and jam, I decided to combine the two for him. I bought 2 lbs of these delicious looking berries at the farmer's market this week, and he devoured the entire 1st pound (pictured above) the first night.
Since Marc grew up in Hanna, Alberta (right near the Saskatchewan border), Saskatoon berry bushes were quite a common berry to have in your yard. He ate plenty of them every summer growing up, and upon tasting the berries I brought home he said that it reminded him of his childhood. They grow here as well, though they are more common on that side of the province.
This recipe makes approximately 3 cups of jam.
