Saskatoon Pie Filling


  • 4 cups saskatoons
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 cup of minute tapioca or flour
  • 2 tbsp water

    Exact proportions of fruit vary with juiciness of the saskatoons and personal preference regarding sweetness and thickness of filling.

    Place berries, water and lemon juice in a saucepan. Simmer about 10 minutes. (Do not boil! May also use microwave to cook berries). Add sugar and tapioca. Arrange mixture in unbaked pie shell.

    Bake on bottom rack of oven at 425 F for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 F for another 30-35 minutes until juice is bubbly.
