A not-too-sweet and fruity pie. Saskatoon berries are known as serviceberries in the United States. This berry has often been compared with blueberries though it has more of an apple flavor.

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.

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!

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.
