Recipe by opusanna

A quick and easy jam recipe I copied from my friend's cookbook. I think it was published by the Idaho Fish and Game department.

First I'll say, I'm from Montana, where huckleberries roam free. But I don't like them. I picked some and made this for my son. Second, I love this recipe!! It's not too sweet, just the right amount of sugar, so it's perfect! I will definitely be making this again!!! It filled 7 half pint jars. Thank you for sharing :-)

  4. Add the sugar all at once.
  5. Bring to a roiling boil, then cook for 2 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat.
  7. Add the Certo packet and stir for 3-4 minutes.
  8. Pour into jars (note: do this as quickly as possible- it will start to set almost immediately).
