More Toilet Talk; And What is a "Saskatoon Pie?"

We've been covering this long-simmering "toilet dispute" in an ultra-conservative Amish community in Pennsylvania.  Seems the schoolmasters at an Amish school were dumping raw sewage from buckets directly onto the surrounding fields, which didn't please the local non-Amish.  The Amish men were found guilty of illegal dumping and refuse to comply with state septic standards.  I would have sworn a settlement was close at hand, but apparently negotiations broke down and this will now go to trial. Unbelieveable.  Part me really respects these Amish men for sticking to their guns, part of me is rolling my eyes at such pointlessly obtuse behavior. 

Now from the gross topic of toilet talk to the yummy topic of food.  This is just a little brief in a Canadian newspaper about a bake sale/yard sale being held on a Hutterite colony. Wow, I'd give anything to attend this.  Sounds like they have some really mouth-melting food for sale.  But, what the heck is a Saskatoon pie???? Any of our Candian visitors know?

Well, thank you. Amazing the knowledge found on this site, my favorite way to learn is just this "people to people" exchange....Waldner is a common Hutterite surname, are you Hutterite?  And I'd love to learn more about these berries, have a recipe for Saskatoon pie, or see a pic - any suggestions?

Re: More Toilet Talk; And What is a "Saskatoon Pie?"

A Saskatoon pie is basically a pie made out of the local berries that are found both domestic and wild, called "Saskatoon" berries.
