Fresh or frozen Saskatoon berries
Pie pastry or store bought tart shells
1/2 cup melted butter
1/4 packed brown sugar
1 pinch salt
1 cup corn syrup
2 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla

Tart Shells
Prepare muffin pans by rolling out pie dough and cutting circles slightly larger than the muffing cups. Fit dough circles into muffin cups; set aside in fridge until ready to fill. If using store bought tart shells, place shells into the muffin tins

Butter Mixture
In a small bowl, mix the melted butter, brown sugar, salt and corn syrup. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.

Place a few Saskatoon berries in each tart shell. Pour the butter mixture into all tarts. Make sure that you only fill mixture about 3/4 full otherwise filling will overflow when baking.

Here is an article by Neil Moran, published May 1st, regarding the growing interest in saskatoon plants: The Saskatoons Are Here!

I am sorry to report that this article is not referring to the fruit. As of today, it’s still too early. Check in with us again come mid-late June to see who has berries ready to pick and/or purchase.
