Default British Ban Canadian Saskatoon Berry Products

Seems the British have banned Canadian made jams, jellies and syrups
containing Saskatoon berries. They think there is something harmful in the
berries? The Queen and her offspring have gobbled down large quantities of
this prairie delicacy during their time at the trough here in Canada. If
such a product is fit for the Queen of England, surely Saskatoon berries can
be consumed by the peasants. Something is wrong here.

My understanding was that the ban only existed when they first tried to sell
the Saskatoon berries there because " it [Britain] says there is no history
of the fruit being eaten safely in Europe. " There was a trade meeting last
Thursday and as of today the berries can be imported into Europe but only
with a "Novel" designation attached. Canada is currently working to get
around that, too.

And the Canadians have never banned any foods from being imported from
other countries?
Perhaps they are banned because the Queen ate them and didn't consider
them fit for import

There's the proof that it's harmful.

shrug Just a new-to-them food having to be passed through a few
hoops. For any Europeans reading the group, run don't walk to your
nearest vendor. They are a yummy, nutriious sour-sweet berry that has
been eaten for tens of thousands of years by the original peoples of
North America. They make excellent jams, are wonderful in crisps and
baked desserts, in muffins, raw, dried, in trail mixes and as fruit
wine(!). I airfreight a twenty pound flat from Lethbridge to Toronto
every August.
