Old Fashioned,Traditional Saskatoon Pie

A scrumptious, easy and traditional Saskatoon pie recipe that my family has been baking for 4 generations.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups of Saskatoon berries
  • ½ cup of white sugar
  • 1 tsp extra white sugar
  • 2½ tbsp cornstarch
  • pie crust for one 9 inch pie
  • 1 egg for brushing the top
  • Option #1 - add 2 tbsp chilled, diced butter on top of the Saskatoons before placing the top crust. If you want to make it vegan, omit butter and egg & use all vegetable based crust, very easy.
  • Option #2 - use crushed Tapioca/Minute Tapioca instead of cornstarch! This was my Grandma's trick sometimes to change it up. Delish!
  • Option #3 - add in tbsp of lemon zest
