{Gluten-free} Huckleberry New York Style Cheesecake

A very dear friend of mine recently celebrated her birthday—and a cheesecake was in order. Mind you, this couldn’t be one of those run-of-the-mill type cakes. It needed to be special. And dense. Not to mention absolutely decadent. You only live once, right? The final requirement was that the cake would have to be gluten-free—an easy task, really, with so many products available now that are void of this troublesome protein.

The huckleberries were hand-picked locally by the small hands of her children. A delightful activity all around. If you haven’t had the pleasure of eating a fresh huckleberry, it’s quite similar to a blueberry. Only smaller. With more flavor. If you have a problem locating huckleberries in your neck of the woods, blueberries are a fine substitute. The recipe here is straightforward, but allow for a languid afternoon of cooking to put it together.

Move Over Blueberries, Huckleberries Are the New Superstar

(Wild Harvest)  Move over blueberries, the REAL, healthy berries are in town. Huckleberries, lingonberries, gooseberries, currants, are all rare, possibly unheard of berries. However, they all have two very important factors in common. They are some of the most naturally healthy foods you can find and they can be found at Northwest Wild Foods. These wild berries can help prevent and cure some of the most notorious diseases affecting humans today including cancer, heart disease, glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetes. Although blueberries are healthy, these other berries actually blow them out of the water in antioxidant charts.
