Saskatoon Berry or Blueberry Muffins

Saskatoon Berry or Blueberry Muffins
Evan and I visit our local Saskatoon berry U-pick every summer. We have figured out that Saskatoon berries are one of our favorite berries to eat in the summer. Delicious!
 
 
Saskatoons are a sweet, seedy berry. They look a lot like blueberries but have a different taste…some say more like a cherry. They grow on the prairies of Canada and in the Northern US. In the US they are called service berries.
These blueberry muffins pack in SO much flavor and are easy breezy to whip up. Learn about my family’s tried and true recipe and you’ll be snacking on these muffins ALL DAY!
 
We have been eating them by the handful for a couple of days. With company coming this weekend, I will be whipping up a batch of Saskatoon Berry muffins.
 
 
A pail of berries goes a loooooong way. I asked what I should make on my MerryAboutTown FB page and there were some great suggestions like Saskatoon berry barbecue sauce, panna cotta, smoothies and more. These will be a great addition to my favourite Saskatoon berry pie recipe and I am looking at revamping some of my blueberry recipes. I think you could easily use Saskatoon berries instead of blueberries in my blueberry overnight french toast bake.
