I only found a few things wrong with this pie, but it was enough to ruin it for me, and I feel compelled to warn anyone who is about to use their precious huckleberries on this one. I would omit the cider vinegar. I feel cheated wasting my $16 worth of handpicked wild huckleberries from the farmer's market on this. Huckleberries are a rare treat with a unique flavor that deserve to stand alone, not be compromised with the taste of vinegar of all things! I thought maybe it was my pregnancy hormones making me more sensitive, but when my husband started sniffing the pie, I asked him why, and he said, "Why does it smell like vinegar?" And NO, I did not add any more than the recipe called for. It was also a bit runny at slightly warm temperature where you want to serve so it could use some more tapioca or other thickener. I tried this with a cream cheese crust which was delicious. I know people use lemon juice in this type of pie, so that might be a better alternative to the vinegar, but probably better to just leave it out.
