One of the blogs I follow is A Canadian Foodie, acanadianfoodie.com. We met Valerie at a Culinary Tourism Workshop. Recently she had a Saskatoon berry jam recipe, which I was inspired to try. Her recipe was simple, always a draw for me. Plus I had recently discovered a bag of frozen Saskatoons in the deep freeze that I wanted to use before next berry season. It didn’t take too long. I boiled it longer than the 15 minutes suggested as I did not think it was getting thick enough. However, after setting it is quite thick and really, really good.
