Huckleberries!

I love huckleberries. I love to pick huckleberries. Huckleberries are wild blueberries. They're smaller then blueberries but they have more flavor and so are soooo good! In my younger days I would go out to a woods with a friend and pick bucket's of huckleberries. Sometimes my kids went too. We'd pick enough for us to eat and also to put into the freezer. Today I got a package in the mail from my niece, Heidi! What fun it was opening it! This picture shows what was in the package. From left to right back row: huckleberry taffy, huckleberry syrup, huckleberry scone mix; middle row l - r: huckleberry cocoa mix, huckleberry tea, huckleberry jam; front row l - r: huckleberry brittle, and huckleberry lollipops! Jerry and I each just ate a taffy, mmmmmm!
Lord, thank You for huckleberries! Thank You for thoughtful nieces. Thank You for Heidi!

How thoughtful of your niece!! I don't think I've ever eaten Huckleberries, or maybe they were and I thought they were blueberries. Anyway I had no idea there were so many products from this berry available. Wow!!!
