Huckleberry Heaven

We had another first on our trip to the Oregon coast: huckleberries! Huckleberry bushes in and around the dunes were still laden with juicy berries at the end of November. These coastal berries are pretty tiny (smaller than a blueberry), but pack a punch of flavor. Hard work picking, and even harder to clean, but well worth the effort.

We picked about 4 gallons of berries and made jam in the camper.

Huckleberry Camper Jam

  • 4 Cups mashed huckleberries (start with 7)
  • 4 Tbsp pectin (4/7 of a bag)
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • Bring to a hard boil.
  • Add 4 cups of sugar
  • Bring to a hard boil for 60 seconds
  • Put into clean jam jars
  • Boil the jars in boiling water covered by 2 inches for 10 minutes.
