California Huckleberry - Vaccinium ovatum - bushes are full of berries after the wet winter and spring we had. The first berry to ripen is the biggest and seems to be the sweetest. On a walk yesterday I saw many berries ready to pick. Hooray! The berries are very high in antioxidants - Mother Nature's vitamin pill. They are found on the Pacific Coast and coastal British Columbia.
Many creatures feed on these berries - birds, foxes, deer and me, to name a few. I freeze big bags and put them in sourdough pancakes all year long. Delish!
