Saskatoon pie

Hi - I have some wild saskatoons and have never made a saskatoon pie before. Any recipes out there!!! I know I have to cook them on top of the stove for a few minutes as they have tough skins, but do not know how much liquid to add, etc. etc. Thanks

No, I have not made a blueberry pie either. I make apple, rhubarb, etc., but not too many berry pies.

I guess my most important question would be -why do some recipes say to cover berries with water and simmer and some say just add 1/4 cup of water. I am referring to a recipe that calls for 4 - 5 cups of berries. I do not want the pie to be too dry.

It would depend on how much thickening (cornstarch, possibly) is used. More water will probably call for more thickening. Try one and see how it goes, using a recipe that calls for less water... I didn't really check any of those recipes, just thought it would be helpful.
I just checked several of them, and none of them called to cover the berries with water.

I just want to make sure I don't get the filling too thick, as I guess it thickens as it cools. I will try the lesser amount of water, as I am going to let the filling cool before putting it in the crust so I can freeze the pie unbaked. If it cools, I should be able to determine if I need to add more liquid. Makes sense, right!!! lol
