The Instacart guide to saskatoons
Saskatoons are very similar to blueberries in many ways. In all likelihood, if you didn't read the label, you might pick up a pint thinking they were blueberries. You probably would be pleased with the mistake, too. Saskatoon berries are blue pomes with the same shape and size as blueberries. They are sweet and nutty and, like blueberries, contain copious amounts of dietary fiber, biotin, riboflavin, iron, and manganese.
In the wild, saskatoons grow like blueberries, in shrub-like bushes that clump and spread. In rare cases, they grow as high as 16 feet, but they run between 1-8 feet tall on average. They grow everywhere in North America, from the central United States up to Alaska and across Canada. In Michigan alone, there are over 20 commercial growers. They go by different names depending on the region, sometimes called the juneberry, prickly pear, serviceberry, shadbush, and pigeonberry.
The saskatoon berry has historically been enjoyed by indigenous people wherever it grows. You can eat saskatoons picked fresh, or you can bake them into pies. Over the years, saskatoons have been made into jams and jellies or dried like cranberries and raisins. You can make wine, beer, and cider from saskatoon berries. Many indigenous people in Canada used them for making pemmican, which is dried meat that saskatoons get added to as a preservative and flavoring.
