I have never had wild huckleberry before, so this is a very interesting post! The pie looks absolutely delicious, too.

OH...I love huckleberries!!! Your pie looks delicious. As far as my husband is concerned, there are only two kinds of pie: hot and cold. He will always eat pie. Did you pick them yourself?

I try to pick a bunch every year and freeze them. I pick most of mine in Newaygo County and some in Lake County Michigan.

this is an excellent recipe - the crust benefits from being baked before filling and the berries benefit from not being cooked and broken down... they are just perfect for burst in your mouth flavor
