Directions

  1. Bring water and lemon juice to a boil in a large pot; stir in serviceberries. Return mixture to a boil.
  2. Whisk sugar and cornstarch together in a bowl. Stir sugar mixture into berries; cook, stirring constantly, until sauce is clear, about 3 minutes.
  3. Sterilize jars and lids in boiling water for at least 5 minutes. Pack pie filling into hot, sterilized jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of the top. Run a knife or thin spatula around the insides of the jars after they have been filled to remove any air bubbles. Wipe the rims of the jars with a moist paper towel to remove any food residue. Top with lids and screw on rings.
  4. Place a rack in the bottom of a large stockpot and fill halfway with water. Bring to a boil and lower jars into the boiling water using a holder. Leave a 2-inch space between the jars. Pour in more boiling water if necessary to bring the water level to at least 1 inch above tops of jars. Bring the water to a rolling boil, cover the pot, and process for 10 minutes.
  5. Remove jars from stockpot and place onto a cloth-covered or wood surface, several inches apart, until cool. Once cool, press top of each lid with a finger, ensuring that seal is tight (lid does not move up or down at all). Store in a cool, dark area.

Very good classic saskatoon pie filling. I changed the number of servings from 24 to 8 because I only wanted to make one 9 inch pie. It was the perfect amount with a couple of tablespoons left over to top 2 yr old Grand Daughters vanilla ice cream. Grand Daughter loved it. Mom and dad thought the pie was awesome and I can apparently make another one sooner than latter. I enjoyed it on toast and aged cheddar cheese. I would definitely make this again and pass the recipe along. Thanks so much, as Saskatoon recipes are hard to come by just like the berries.
