Will Saskatoon Berries be the next big berry?
I discovered Saskatoon Berries when I visited Sakatchewan for the first time in 2004. Not only did I enjoy Saskatoon Berry Pie, I imbied in a little Saskatoon Berry Wine. Yum!
Last year, while on my cross-country train adventure on VIA Rail Canada, I met a lovely couple from the prairies who sent me a jar of Saskatoon Berry Jam after I returned home.
So it was fun to see Sandra Purdy of Prairie Berries in Keeler, Saskatchewan make a presentation with her niece on Dragons' Den recently. You can watch the segment on YouTube.
Sandra auditioned for a spot in March of 2010, and the next month she flew to Toronto to appear on the popular CBC show.
