Honey Huckleberry Fruit Leather ~ Gourmet Edition ~

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Huckleberries… ya just got to say it like a red-neck…. Go on, say it. Huuuuuukllllllll-buuuuuury!  There is a fruit stand that sells homemade ice creams, pies and all sorts of jams down the road and they have a big sign out front advertising Huckleberry Milkshakes.  Every time we drive past there my mouth waters and I just have to hoot and holler the words…  “Wanna have a Huuuuuukllllllll-buuuuuury milkshake pa?!”

After driving by there often, my curiosity got the best of me and I had to taste a huckleberry.  I finally swung in and bought us some good ole huckleberries. Ohhhh, they are little orbs of heaven!   This was a taste that I wanted to enjoy year round so I decided to preserve their amazing taste in a fruit leather.  I didn’t mess around with the flavor profile too much because I wanted the pureness of the huckleberry to shine through and that it did!

    Hi Amie Sue, huckleberries translated in french, means cranberries, but on your beautiful picture it does not seem to be the same…? Thank you for your answer and with warm regards, AM

      Good evening Anne- Marie,

      Well, here in the US, huckleberries and cranberries are two different berries. Huckleberries are a small, round, edible blue-black berry related to the blueberry. Cranberries are red and tart. larger than a huckleberry too. You could use about any berry in place of the huckleberry if you don’t have them. They are not a real common berry. In fact, I never had them before moving here to Oregon. :) Blessings Anne- Marie, amie sue

    I made the huckleberry honey fruit leather and I found that even after 16+ hours in my warming drawer (my oven doesn’t go that low), there are a couple of spots (not necessarily in the middle) that don’t seem to want to dry completely. I am wondering if I put the pan on a wire rack if it would dry through and through. So far,it’s a huge hit. I have a lot of hucks from last summer and I found this the BEST way to use them and send to family and friends. Right now I have a dryer on the spot that still needs drying and hope that works. If I stick it back in the drawer, then the edges will get over done and crack apart.

      Oh I am so jealous of your huckleberry stash! hehe I haven’t done any of my leathers in the oven so I can’t respond with experience but I have had that happen with the dehydrator. I think what happens is that they leather is just thicker in spots which makes the dry time longer for those sections. Have a blessed day, amie sue
