Saskatoon Berry Scones

Saskatoon Berry Scones - Candy Coated Culinista

A lunchtime city walk became such a fruitful trip when I stumbled upon a Farmer’s Market a block from my office. Saskatoon berries look like blueberries; but are surprisingly related to the apple family. The city of Saskatoon was named after this berry.

My thoughts
I’m surprised at how my scones always turn out. For some reason I just never know with scones and yet they come out soft and fluffy and bursting with flavour. All enjoyed these and the only comment was where the clotted cream and jam is. Now these had to travel so I didn’t bring those; but it was perfect none the less.
