"If you are lucky enough to get your hands on some fresh huckleberries, this is a wonderful recipe. Lemon zest adds a little extra kick!"

pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
grated lemon zest
thanks for sharing this recipe -it was delicious! We were in the Mtns visiting Mt St Helens and oh my did we see huckleberries everywhere in the blast zone!! we picked 6 cups! I had enough for your pie! I came here looking for a recipe and found yours! It was wonderful! The only thing I changed is to add liitle more flour -2T to 1/4 cup --berries are very juicy! Oh and some cinnanmon about 1/2 t.
This tasted great, the lemon adds a nice flavor, but using just the flour as a thickener left me with huckleberry soup and a mushy, pasty crust. I tried it again and used a quarter cup of 'quick tapioca' instead of a tablespoon of flour and the pie was nice and solid. I also found it was much better after it had cooled completely - much less runny.
I am not sure what went wrong with this pie. We had just picked our huckleberries in the Columbia Gorge and they were very tasty, so I thought they would be perfect for a pie. I followed the advice of another reviewer and increased the flour to 1/4 C and the pie was still very runny. It completely saturated the bottom and even the top crust. It was like eating mush. I've decided to make this again but instead I will make mini pies in cupcake tins to control the oozing and keep some consistency. Also, I will not use the cream on the top either, I don't think it did much except to add more calories.
This was a very good recipe but I found it to be very runny. When I used 5 level TBS. of cornstarch it came out perfect! With this change, I give this recipe a 5 star rating!
One review was absolutely correct. Flour does not work as a thickener in this instance. The best way is tapioca ( 2 tbls ), berries, sugar, and lemon juice in a bowl mixed and let set for 10-15 min. before adding to pie pan.
The pie was real juicy/runny. But it was still fantastic. I will probably alter it next time, but will definitely make it again. Thanks.
My family loves Huckleberry Pie! I struggled with the runny pie dilemma for years until I decided to prepare the filling in a saucepan first. Each year's batch of berries come on the bush with a varying degree of sweetness and juiciness. In order to make sure my pies set and taste just right, I prepare the filling on the stove to get the right consistency and flavor.
I left out the lemon zest and cream because my family prefers the simple taste of the Huckleberries
I followed the recipe to the tee, but used a metal pie dish. The pie ended up too runny, undercooked and it was not good enough to eat. I still have huckleberries left and will try to cook the berries first before filling the pie shell.
