My West Coast friends love these things.
According to Wikipedia, a huckleberry is the state fruit of Idaho. It sort of looks like a blueberry, and is a little bitter. It will also stain your clothes. I had been a bit excited to try it, and I have to say it was….interesting. Bitter, lemony, oddly sweet….very interesting. And the West Coasters LOVE them. Like really, really love them.
Honestly, I will probably stick to raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries, but at least now I can say I’ve tried huckleberries. I’m sure my three-hour jaunt through Idaho would have been incomplete without them.
