Saskatoon Berry Jam


  • 4 cups saskatoons
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Juice and grated peel of 1/2 lemon


Crush the saskatoons in a large saucepan. Leave some closer to whole than completely crushed to give the jam a little bit of texture. Heat the berries on a medium heat until the juice starts to come from them.

Add sugar and the water and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Once to a boil, add the lemon juice and the lemon peel. Bring to a boil again and cook, stirring until thickened, about 15 minutes.

Pour into hot sterilized jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. Wipe rims thoroughly. Seal and process in a water bath for 10 minutes. Makes about 3 cups.
