15 Canadian delicacies you have to try


Saskatoon berries

Did you know that the city of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, took its name from the purplish-blue berry that used to grow in abundance in the region? Various North American Indian tribes traditionally used the berry to make Pemmican, a dried meat, like bison, elk, or deer, that is pounded and mixed with fat and berries. Different species of the berries are known as juneberries, serviceberries, shadberries, bilberry, and Indian pear. The berries are used to make various desserts, including pie and jam.
