Living in the heart of Washington brings great appreciation for the huckleberry season. Huckleberry bushes are beautiful! Daily, we enjoy the beauty of the huckleberry bushes and the many stories they have inspired. Many of us have wonderful memories of picking huckleberries in the hot July and August sun and running away when a bear came to claim his territory. Huckleberries are indeed a tasty and delicious food. Huckleberry varieties come in many colors, sizes, and textures. The fruit is great for cooking and is nutritious to eat alone. It is no wonder that huckleberry bush cultivation quickly spread throughout the western United States. Huckleberries have an interesting history of facts and folklore. Some of this huckleberry folklore is included in this book. As a poet, I found it enjoyable to color this cookbook with poetry so that readers could savor the metaphorical richness of the huckleberry as well as its literal flavor. Also included in this Huckleberry Delights Cookbook are some articles on history, cultivation, and botanical information, along with interesting facts about huckleberries. The Cookbook Delights Series would not be complete without Huckleberry Delights because huckleberries are a common and popular Pacific Northwestern American fruit. We hope you enjoy reading it as well as trying out all the recipes. This cookbook is designed for easy use and is organized into alphabetical sections: appetizers and dips; beverages; breads and rolls; breakfasts; cakes; candies; cookies; desserts; dressings, sauces, and condiments; jams, jellies, and syrups; main dishes; pies; preserving; salads; side dishes; soups; and wines and spirits.
