My in-laws are some of the most adept pickers, gatherers, and foragers I know–especially when it comes to mushrooms and berries. They can identify any plant or fungi and tell you if it’s safe to eat, all about its lifecycle, where to find it, and how to prepare it. Every year, my father-in-law picks a huge haul of huckleberries and makes jams, pies, and all sorts of other delicious creations. Feeling inspired, I asked if he could bring some fresh huckleberries from Montana for a certain Office cocktail. He did not disappoint.
This was fun to make, drink, and even smell in the kitchen as the fresh huckleberries simmered away. The color is also gorgeous. The finished product was truly a family affair as my husband’s family picked the berries and we served the drinks in my great-grandmother’s etched wine glasses. 👨❤️💋👨👨🏼🌾👵🏻 by @thepoweroflurve
