When it comes to canning, pie filling is one of the easiest things to make and the results are always fantastic. Just because it is pie filling doesn't mean it will just be used in pies either. Think topping for your favorite cheesecake or ice cream! Yum!
Only a few ingredients needed.
Saskatoon Pie Filling
4 cups water
1/2 cup lemon juice
12 cups Saskatoons
3 cups sugar
1 cup cornstarch
Bring the water and lemon juice to a boil in a fairly large pot.
Add the Saskatoon berries and bring back to a boil.
Mix the sugar and cornstarch together making sure to break up any clumps. You want this very well mixed.
Add the sugar/cornstarch mixture to the pot.
Whoops? Did I forget to take a photo? Sorry!
Stir and cook until the it thickens and the juice becomes clear.
Just look at that! Can it get more yummy?
Pour into pint or quart jars and process. 20 minutes for quarts, 15 minutes for pints.

While the pints are processing scrap the pot and gobble up the remains.
Go ahead! You know you want too!
