Huckleberry Haus Cookbook

Huckleberry Haus Cookbook 
by Rev. Stan Simonik 
Rev. Stan Simonik, 1997

Although closely related to the wild and supermarket varieties of blueberry, huckleberries are rarely cultivated and their berries have a more tart flavor. Those growing wild in the Pacific Northwest are more often called "huckleberries" while the eastern species of the plants are sometimes referred to as "blueberries."

Whatever they are called, they are an enormously popular and highly versatile berry, as demonstrated by the 170 recipes in this huckleberry cookbook.

"Where can we find huckleberries?" Rev. Stan Simonik, the author of this cookbook, is asked repeatedly. 

"Oh, they are all over," he replies, which is a polite way of saying, "Ask me no questions and I'll tell you no lies."

Serious wild huckleberry pickers try to keep their favorite patches as secret as possible, but once the berries begin to ripen their presence is hard to disguise. And, as they mostly grow on public lands open to anyone with a pail, it's first come, first serve.

Simonik's cookbook includes short, humorous essays on how to pick huckleberries and his personal experiences on huckleberry hunting outings in the mountains of Idaho.

Spiral bound so that it lays flat on the kitchen counter, the book includes recipes for muffins, pies, cakes, breads, cheesecake, pastries, cobblers, jams, cookies and beverages -- all spiked with the flavor of huckleberry.

"Huckleberries are very difficult to find. Because most people think that . . . they're over there! The best huckleberries have a sly way of being exactly where you are standing!"
