Flavor Spotlight: Huckleberry
September 15, 2014 | Posted in: News
I went on a much needed vacation to Mt. Adams, Washington, a couple weeks ago. I was hoping to take some R & R from jam making, but it turns out it was huckleberry season up there! Well, I know it takes a lot of those little buggers to make a pound, much less 5 lb baggies, so when the general store said they had a bunch of them, I tried to buy them up. I bought 100 lbs and hardly made a dent in their stock. These were also the biggest, cleanest and best picked batch I had ever come across. I have cooked down 30 lbs already and have sold most of them!
An 8 oz jar sells for $8 and a 4 oz for $5. Make sure to get yours soon, as I am selling them like crazy.
