My Huckleberry Friend......

It is huckleberry season in the northwest.  Huckleberries are in the family of blueberries and even cranberries, but they are only grown wild.  It is almost impossible to cultivate them yourself.  We were gifted with some, so huckleberry pancakes were on the menu this morning.

They range in color from very red to very blue, similar to a blueberry.  They have quite a strong smell.  To me, it reminds me of black walnuts that we had growing in our backyards. 

You can see they are much smaller than blueberries.

Just your favorite pancake recipe, be it homemade or store-bought.  These tasted so good.  Actually, blueberry pancakes taste very bland and dull compared to huckleberry pancakes.
