Extravagantly wild with an intensely tart, almost bittersweet flavor, these tiny berries pack a flavor punch. Often mistaken for dwarf blueberries, Montana’s huckleberries are much more robust than your standard blueberry—and much more prized, due to the inability to cultivate them. And in pies and milkshakes, they become something transcendent. From June through August, it feels like every diner and roadside shake shack worth respect serves the beloved berry: Try The Park Café in St. Mary, at the east entrance to Glacier National Park, for a scrape-your-fork-good slice of huckleberry pie.
