From Old-Time Farmhouse Cooking by Barbara Swell. This is a simple recipe, all except the huckleberry part. Huckleberries are little wild blueberries that grow in high mountains and ripen in mid-to-late August. Their flavor is intense and the experience of picking them is even better. If you’ve ever spent a whole day picking enough berries for just one pie, I don’t need to tell you that these berries deserve your most perfect pie crust! No huckleberries? Well, blueberries will work, just add an extra teaspoon of corn starch and please, use fresh ones!
