The Food Guys Remind You: It's Huckleberry Time In Montana

Julie (CC-BY-2.0)

The Food Guys, Greg and Jon, praise Montana's annual huckleberry bonanza. Greg prefers the intensity he finds in small, early purple huckleberries for sale at Montana farmers markets from early to mid-July. As long as it's a huckleberry, Jon's not particular. "The difference between a blueberry and a huckleberry is the difference between Cheez Wizz and cheese."

Greg describes his method for freezing huckleberries, and what he did with several recently-discovered bags of frozen berries labelled "2011."
