I would love to make this recipe, where can I purchase the huckleberries? My father use to go out in woods years ago and we all picked huckleberries which he then made a pie with !!! Best pie ever, better than blueberries, smaller berries with a little more tartness !

This is very good. I don't know what huckleberries are, so I have used blueberries.
