THE JENA TIMES Olla-Tullos-Urania Signal 6B Wednesday, May 9, 2018 Huckleberries are beginning to ripen and will soon be ready to be converted into delicious pies. Glynn Harris photo Huckleberries, the essence (I checked on my huckleberry bushes growing in my yard and they’re loaded with some beginning to ripen. Memories of these little jewels being converted into the most delectable pies you’ll ever eat, sent me searching for an article I wrote three years ago. I thought it timely to share it again this week.) Look up “huckleberry” on the web and you’ll see what know-everything Wikipedia has to say….”The name ‘huckleberry’ is a North American variation of the

English dialectal name variously called ‘hurtleberry’ or ‘whortleberry’.” Whatever. All I know is that these little dark purple orbs can be converted into the most delectable pie this side of the Pearly Gates. It all started with me growing up out on the rural route when my mom would hand my brother and me a coffee can each with orders to go find some huckleberries. When we returned, hopefully with enough to meet her satisfaction, she would magically transform these little wild 11-0 on the year and looking to go 12-0. The Tigers had defeated Delta Charter in the opening game of the season, 7-1; but Delta Charter had been on a roll as of late. The Storm would hold LaSalle scoreless through five innings and were able to get Eli to throw 85 pitches through three innings. The Storm would battle at the plate and did a great job of two strike hitting.
