Huckleberry Glitter Soap


I love the rich flavor of huckleberries. There is a small local pizzeria here that makes wonderful dessert pizzas.  My favorite is one that has marscapone, apples, and a special sugar blend. However, when it is huckleberry season, they will even put huckleberries on it. Yummy. These little berries pack a powerful flavor punch!I love looking at huckleberries almost as much as I love eating them. Rich in purples, red and even blues, the beautiful berries are mesmerizing. If you have a bucket of them, it looks like you have hundreds of sparkling jewels, sticky from their juice. I found a picture that just sums up everything I am trying to explain to you. This increadible photo was taken by Caroline Cummins. Let’s head to the kitchen to make a huckleberry inspired soap!
