I haven’t seen any huckleberries for sale in Oregon. I am thinking they really only grow in northern Idaho and Montana but I’m not sure. I don’t even know what they look like – I’ve been told they look like blueberries, but a little bit more purple. I’m a Florida girl at heart – I am not going to take a chance and eat a random berry on a bush if I don’t know for sure what it is!
I saw this huckleberry honey at the grocery store and I decided to give it a try! It is good alone and it is also really good in tea. Then I decided to get some vanilla ice cream and that was the best way to enjoy the huckleberry honey!
When I looked closely at the label, I noticed this was made in Montana. It looks like we need to head to Montana for some fresh huckleberries!
