SASKATOON BERRY JAM
Waterton Lakes National Park
The Saskatoon Berry
The berry-like fruits are about 1 cm. (approx. 1/2 in.) in diameter
and when mature turn dark purple in colour, and are high in Iron and Copper.
The seeds give the berries an almond-like flavour. The plant grows as a
shrub or small tree, and is quite at home here in Southern Alberta! Blooming
from May to June, the fragrant white flowers are often so abundant they
make the parent plant appear frost or snow covered. In the fall their leaves
turn crimson, adorning our Mountain sides with their patch work of colour.
Saskatoon Berries were considered one of the most important foods by
indigenous cultures. The Blackfoot used the fresh berries in soups, stews,
and pemmican. The berries were also used to make dyes and remedies for
stomach aches and liver problems. Dried berries were a very important winter
staple and trade item.
Today, at the Kilmorey Lodge, the delicious berries are used for making
excellent pies and world renowned preserves. In the Park, the fruits are
relished by a host of Birds, Bears, Chipmunks and Squirrels. We like to
leave the berries for the "Critters", so the Saskatoon Berries
used here at the Lodge are picked in Alberta outside the National Parks.
This product is manufactured entirely in Waterton Lakes National Park,
by the staff of the Kilmorey Lodge.
