Saskatoons can easily be made into fruit leather to enjoy in the winter months. This can be done the natural way by drying under the sun, although this year it looks like you will need a dehydrator!

Saskatoon Fruit Leather

Ingredients:

A bowl of freshly picked saskatoon berries

Sweetener (sugar or honey) to taste

Wash the berries. Place in a pot on low heat. Cook until the berries are soft. Depending on what final texture you desire, mash or puree the berries. Add some water for a fine thin leather (trial and error). Add your sweetener to taste. Spread on dehydrator sheets and dehydrate until done.
