Making your own Wild Huckleberry Sauce is easier than you might think. And there are so many ways to use this versatile sauce! You can pour it over pancakes, blend it to make a smooth huckleberry syrup, use it to make huckleberry milkshakes and other drinks, or thicken it to make huckleberry cheesecake topping! You can even use frozen or fresh huckleberries in this recipe!
Here is a wonderful recipe I found on the Hilda’s Kitchen Blog
- 2 cups huckleberries (fresh or frozen)
- 1 cup brown sugar (or white sugar)
- 1/3 cup water
- 2 T. orange juice
- 1 T. cornstarch
- Add huckleberries, brown sugar, and water to a saucepan. You can use white sugar if you prefer. Bring the mixture to a boil then simmer for 10 minutes over low heat.
- Smash the huckleberries against the side of the pot using a wooden spoon to release the huckleberry juices. This is an optional step, but kinda fun!
- Make a slurry by mixing the orange juice and cornstarch until smooth.
- Add the slurry to the huckleberries and cook for an additional minute or two, until slightly thickened.
