These rare, gorgeous and delectable intensely dark blue (about the size of blueberries) mountain huckleberries ($4 per 1/2 pint) were purchased this afternoon from Foraged & Found Edibles at Columbia Farmers Market.
They were foraged in and around the Mount St. Helens and Mt. Adams area and just in case you wish to get some they'll be available for purchase next Saturday at the U-District Farmers Market.
Following Christine Ferber's (what else is new) basic blueberry recipe, they were taken home, cooked with sugar and juice of two small lemons and are sitting right now in the refrigerator, in a covered glass bowl, waiting for the second simmer and boil tomorrow afternoon.
I'm counting the hours until I can taste this beauty.
