Huckleberry Pie

Huckleberry Pie

Makes 8 servings
Prep Time: 30 minutes (excl. cooling)
Cook Time: 55 minutes (excl. cooling)

It is the season where we start spending more time with family indoors and start wanting warm comforting foods. It is also the time of year when we enjoy more and more sweet treats. Why not, it is getting to be winter after all and we need more insulation! In the spirit of the season, we have baked up a deliciously sweet dessert recipe for those that are still wanting to enjoy the summer berries. Nothing finishes off a meal like a warm pie, and nothing says delicious wild food quite like mountain huckleberries. Their pleasant tartness is perfectly captured when we freeze them, locking in the amazing flavour so no matter what time of year you are looking to enjoy them, they are ready for you.

This huckleberry pie is too good to pass up, and when you bake it don’t forget to tag @westcoastwildfoods on Instagram when you post your attempt at this recipe. We might even share it with our followers!
