Wild Huckleberry Jam Recipe

Wild Huckleberry Jam Recipe

This Wild Huckleberry Jam Recipe is sure to please!

Huckleberries are a Montana state treasure.

True huckleberries only grow in the wild, and mostly on the subalpine slopes of the Northern Rockies. Efforts to cultivate huckleberries have failed so far, making them an elusive and special berry that can only be foraged in the mountains alongside the bears! 

Huckleberry food is a staple of Montana and the Rocky Mountains. Sweet and tart come together with each taste. If you're looking for the perfect gift for someone that says Montana, there's nothing better than the gift of huckleberry food! The huckleberry cannot be grown commercially, so it must be hand-picked from the fields and meadows that border the mountain ranges.

If you've ever visited on of our Montana Gift Corral locations, you've seen shelves upon shelves of delicious huckleberry products.

Today, we're going to walk you through how to make your very own wild huckleberry jam, so you may delight your friends, family and taste buds!


Prep Time: 1 hour   |    Makes 10 half pint jars


  • 1 quart of huckleberries

  • 5 cups of sugar

  • 1 1/4 cups of water

  • 1 3oz packet of liquid pectin


1. Wash huckleberries and remove all stems

2. Place your berries in a deep saucepan with water.

3. Slowly bring to a boil.

4. Once boiling, add all sugar to the mixture.

5. Continue boiling for 2 minutes.

6. After removing from heat, add the pectin and stir for 3-4 minutes.

7. Pour the mixture into the jars as quickly as possible (as the jam will start setting immediately).

8. Seal using your favorite canning method!

9. Let cool, share and enjoy!
