The Bozeman Vibe

The Bozeman Vibe

    I’m sure you’ve heard of this thing called “The Bozeman Vibe” in one form or another. Maybe you’ve heard some MSU freshmen claiming Bozeman is nothing like the small town they grew up-in in Northern Montana. Maybe you’ve heard some older residents lamenting the “Old Bozeman” and have seen the graffiti declaring “Bring Back the Old Bozeman!” on some of the older and run down buildings. But what is the “Bozeman Vibe”?

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!
