About Stamp

Edible Canadian wild berries are featured on seven definitive stamps issued on August 5, 1992, replacing the Canadian mammals series of 1988. Found throughout Canada, it is not surprising that the 15 different species of the saskatoon berry also have various names. It was useful in the early West where Indians and settlers would prepare pemmican, a paste made from buffalo meat, fat and berries, to last through the long winter months. They are ideal for jams, jellies, pies, muffins or pancakes.
