They grow wild around my house.
Do they taste better cooked? Or do you leave them for the birds?

We pick Huckleberries yearly, most often V. Ovalifolium.
I want the evergreens to taste good. They are abundant, and easy to find when we go to the coast. But have never tried one I didn’t Immediately spit out. However I have not tried cooking them.
