The huckleberry resembles the blueberry, but does not belong to the blueberry family. Although all huckleberries are edible, some species are not very tasty.
The garden huckleberry, which was developed by Luther Bur bank, is closely related to the tomato. It is best in pie, with lemon juice added.
When eating huckleberries, add a little honey. They can also be mixed in fruit salads.
Benefits of Huckleberry
Huckleberries are especially helpful in aiding the pancreas in digesting sugars and starches. This fruit is alkaline in reaction.
The huckleberry is high in vitamins B and C and potassium. They can be used in an elimination diet, and because they are high in iron, are good for building the blood.
Huckleberries have been used as packs on running sores, eczema, and skin disorders. The leaves of the huckleberry may be dried and used to make a tea that is good for poor starch digestion.
