Huckleberry sauce
The hunckelberrys can be simmered down into a sauce which may also be used as a syrup. This is fast and easy to make.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes


  • 2 cups (1 pint) wild blueberries (or huckleberries)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 4 Tablespoons water
  • 1 Tablespoon butter


Combine the blueberries or huckleberries, water, sugar, and salt in a medium saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil and simmer gently for 15 minutes. While simmering, mash the berries slightly with a potato masher. Mix the cornstarch into water. With the blueberries still simmering, slowly stir in the cornstarch mixture. Continue to stir for at least two minutes. Remove from heat and stir in butter.

Yield: 1-1/2 to 2 cups
