    Here's why they're not blueberries.

    That's a medium-sized blueberry on the left, ripe huckleberry on the right.

    Note that these two berries no longer exist.

    They were eaten in a spoonful of rice pudding. :rock:

    I am identifying them more by the leaves. Berries can vary greatly in size.

    What part of the world is that? It's not PNW I dont think...

    Appalachia. A hike I take off the Blue Ridge Parkway. If it hadn't been so cloudy you could see the road way down under. There was nothing to see but water vapor so I didn't take that shot.

    I think those berries are blueberries...at least that's what we call them over here. The leaves aren't right for the huckleberries I'm familiar with.

    The foliage does indeed look a lot like blueberries (some varieties anyway). And when I first came upon them that's what I thought I was looking at. But as you can see standard blueberries are way bigger, and although there's no way to post this on the internet, huckleberries are way tastier.

    I've got blueberries in my yard. Completely different fruit.

    Don't use that recipe. It was edible, but the cake isn't sweet, and there isn't that much of it.
