Makes: About 1 1/2 cups sauce Prep time: 15 minutes
This simple sauce is chunky with whole fruit. Use it to top ice cream or pound cake, or drizzle some on your next turkey sandwich—it’s a nice substitute for cranberry sauce.
3 cups red huckleberries
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup water
Dash of freshly grated nutmeg
Rinse and pick over berries, removing any stems. Combine sugar and water in a medium saucepan and bring to a low boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Lower heat to medium-low, and add berries. Simmer for about 12 minutes, stirring regularly, until berries soften and break. Remove from heat and stir in a dash of nutmeg. Sauce will thicken as it cools.
