Last week I went huckleberry picking with a dear friend and her family at their "secret spot." It was abundant with ripe, purple berries. However, huckleberry picking is a lot of work! I have never gone for an entire day before but it was worth it! I know have a large bag of huckleberries in my freezer to savor throughout the summer! It was also nice to just sit down in a patch of berries and chat for hours as we filled out buckets!
I plan on making some homemade huckleberry ice cream in my ice cream maker. Just eating them frozen out of the bag is delicious, too!
