Huckleberries are small, globe-shaped berries that come in red or black, depending on the variety. Each berry contains many seeds, and the flavor is a combination of sweet and tart. Like other berries, they can be used in jams, pies, cobblers, and crumbles. The plants are found in mountainous regions with acid soil and are in season at the end of the summer. They're especially a favorite food of bears.
Give them a try if you find them; they're really delicious!
