A wonderful dark jam that is thick with local saskatoons and local apples. The addition of a gentle touch of fresh ginger just pulls these 2 fruits together. For those who grew up picking local saskatoons, this will taste like home with a small added zest.
Uses: All breakfast items. Use this to top a cheesecake, fill a layer cake or drizzle over ice cream. It is lovely in yogurt or smoothies.
This jam is lovely with the addition of chopped apples, maybe walnuts and some brandy to make festive tarts.

We use our profits to make fruit snacks for food programs in the city that support those who are in need. Over the last 2 years with the manpower of wonderful volunteers we have made and donated about 27,000 individual snacks. These are apple chips, fruit leather, and apple sauce tubes.
We also provide work experience and volunteer opportunities for those who want the opportunity to contribute to others. This is usually with the apple snack program. Some tasks are perfect for those who have a variety of limitations.
When it comes to picking we will priorize those who are no longer able to care for their fruit trees.
We use local fruit that grows in people's yards instead of letting it go to waste. We also work with other groups in the city who want local fruit for their charity or food programs. By speaking to homeowners we are able to educate them about the apple maggot infestation and proper disposal of their yard waste. By teaching preserving classes we help homeowners find ways of using their own fruits.
We compost and recycle whenever possible.
