A National Post Best Cookbook of 2021

A celebration of some of the lesser-known berries local to the prairie region, including sea buckthorn, haskap, saskatoons, currants, sour cherries, and chokecherries.

This little cookbook is all about the berries and small fruits grown in prairie gardens, gathered from U-pick farms, and foraged in the wild. Home cook and accomplished gardener Sheryl Normandeau presents 65 recipes for everything from meat, poultry, and fish dishes, vegetable and grain dishes, to desserts, baked goods, beverages, and preserves (including fruit leather). If you've ever gathered some of these favourite prairie berries and then wondered what to make, with Normandeau's help you'll soon have no trouble putting them to use in easy, fun, and flavourful recipes like:

  • Sea Buckthorn Berry and Earl Grey Tea Cocktail
  • Pan-Fried Salmon with Sea Buckthorn Berry Sauce
  • Saskatoon Berry Cream Puffs
  • Currant Meringue Cookies
  • Haskap Beet Dark Chocolate Brownies
  • Baked Brie with Chokecherry Drizzle
  • Chokecherry Rosewater Jelly

Beautifully illustrated, the book also includes instructions for how to make and process jams and jellies, tips for storing and drying berries, and guidelines for successful foraging. Whether you're new to the prairie region's flora or have a stockpile of fond roadside berry-picking memories, it's the perfect go-to and gift.

"I'm so excited to have a book focused on some of my favourite prairie ingredients--haskaps! Sea buckthorn! Saskatoons! Chokecherries! Sheryl provides direction on how to identify, harvest, store and preserve them all, followed by a plethora of useful recipes, from cakes to cocktails. And I love the illustrations so much I want to tear them out and hang them on my kitchen wall--perhaps I need a second copy!" --Julie Van Rosendaal, cookbook author and food columnist for the Globe & Mail and CBC Radio's The Calgary Eyeopener
