Huckleberries in north Idaho are Purple Gold! This year was no exception! Our oldest Son and Family live in Colorado. We asked what he would like us to bring from home and of course his answer was huckleberries! If i were going to sell a gallon of huckleberries my price would be $120 a gallon! They aren't easy, but O, my they are so worth it =D While in Broomfield, CO we made this dessert for them! They don't normally eat left overs, but they did make an exception for this!
