JAM

I need advice on making Jam. I picked a gazillion huckleberries this weekend. I know some basic recipes but can someone give me some tips so I don't mess up my berries.

So many creative people here.

Goldie and Stogie didn't go because of bears. In fact, a mom and cub popped up not too far from me.

You go girl!
Sorry I have no hints on the jam....I am waaay to lazy and cheap- heck when I can get a jar for $1 at the store, I am satisfied!!
But- I think you should send me a jar....so I can sample what Huckleberry al-a-MM tastes like!

There are SO MANY right now. Today I was in a tiny area and could have picked all day. You will have to visit the park sometime in Huckleberry season!

OMG---You collected huckleberries in a poop bag? That is absolutely hilarious!

YOU GO GIRL!

On a side note--I don't think I have ever ate a huckleberry in my life. I have however watched Huckleberry Hound!

I didn't even know a huckleberry was a real berry. I thought it was a boy without shoes that hung out with Tom...

What berry is it similar to?

I know nothing about making jam, but it could probably make wine too.

What park are you speaking of? Or is it top secret? Most people seem to keep their 'spots' hush-hush. Were you in bear country? Just read an article today that the bears are especially hungry this year.

Kara, I think they are probably most similar to a blueberry? Smaller, stronger flavor.

Yes, like a blueberry but smaller and stronger and YUMMMMMY. Grand Teton National Park is where I was. I camp there every weekend. Yes
bear country. Lots of bears in this area so you have to watch and listen. Bears LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE huckleberries. So. Do. I.

Can you make huckleberry muffins then? (If they are like blueberries?). That sounds yummy!
