A Fruity New Year

Every year, I make a food-related New Year's resolution. I find these resolutions are much easier to keep! So, my 2011 resolution is to eat more Saskatchewan-grown fruit: to beg, buy, u-pick, forage and by any other possible means try every fruit that grows in Saskatchewan and discover great ways to serve it. And to post it on this blog, of course...


Here's a list of fruits that are grown in Saskatchewan, as far as I know (additions welcome): Apple, Apricot, Black Current, Blueberry, Buffalo Berry, Cherry, Chokecherry, Cloudberry, Cranberry, Crowberry, Elderberry, Goji, Gooseberry, Grape, Haskap, Lemon, Lingonberry, Pear, Plum, Raspberry, Saskatoons, Seabuckthorn and Strawberry.

What about crowberry. It makes great jam! And then there's high bush cranberry but the only way I ever managed to like it is by making juice out of it and mixing it with Sprite!
