Wasatch Serviceberries

Amelanchier alnifolia, a.k.a. saskatoon, from corrupted Cree Indian word "misâskwatômina". It gave a very abundant crop in the Wasatch Mountains in 2008. This berry tastes the best when it is absolutely ripe, without any tint of red. If your serviceberry has a mealy or bland taste, then you must have picked it too early.

Hmmmm...Nummy!

I think I'll make blueberry pancakes for breakfast! Beautiful berries! I hope our highly fluctuating weather in the NW hasn't ruined our mountain berry crops!

We have deciduous red huckleberries throughout the NW in the lowlands.... in my yard. They are tasty. The grouseberries are mostly in Eastern WA, higher elevations.
