The Saskatoon berries in our Saunders Family Farm Saskatoon Jam combine the sweetness of blueberries with the sourness of black currents. But, Saskatoon berries have their own unique taste. Enjoy these Prairie berries spread on cornbread or warm up and poured over waffles. On the savoury side serve with game meats like elk or caribou.
