So I just know you’ve been waiting with bated breath to learn what I did with those Saskatoon berries I got last week.
There were so many tasty options (thanks for the pie recipe, Elaine) and I am definitely planning on visiting the Kekuli Cafe in West Kelowna for some Saskatoon berry bread pudding (thanks for the tip, Alice).
In the meantime, I chose a really simple option that let me really taste and enjoy those berries. I poured them, raw, over a bowl of honey-laced Greek yogurt. It. Was. Divine. The whole family loved it, and each downed two bowls full. What a pairing!
The next day, with only a few berries left, I made gazpacho, which was quite nice if you like cold, fruity soup… which I’m not so sure I do.
Anyway, I didn’t take any pictures, but if you are curious enough to try it yourself, here’s the recipe:
1 cantaloupe, peeled, seeded and cut into small pieces
1 cucumber, peeled and chopped up
2 Tablespoons honey
3 teaspoons white wine vinegar
8 basil leaves
1/4 cup Saskatoon berries (or substitute blueberries)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1. In a blender, combine all ingredients until smooth.
2. Refrigerate and serve cold.
As for me, I see more honey Greek yogurt topped with fresh, ripe Saskatoons in my future.
