    Dear Julie, this recipe is one of my go-to recipes, like so many of your recipes and requires no changes. I’m guilty of changing almost every recipe I use. Ok, I use this recipe for saskatoons, but I don’t count that as a change really does it? 🙂 Thank you for giving us so many good recipes. Thank you for encouraging us to cook and to change recipes and experiment and eat food; dirty food, clean food, local, exotic, fresh and frozen. You are wonderful and I love the work you do.
    Much love!
