Do You Know What Kind....

...of berry this is?? I do now. I had to look it up because I had never seen it before. We found it in a slough at the mouth of the Noatak River.

Looks like soapberry to me, but not 100% sure. Usually found in dry areas, woodlands and gravel bars. Used to be used as a dessert topping by adding sugar to whipped froth of the berries, as it is bitter tasting.

Yup, that's soap berry! "Indian Ice Cream" is delish!

Hello...soapberry! Don't you have a copy of Anore Jones, "Plants that we eat?!" The new ones are over at the New Park Service Museum. :)

Well, being from the "outside," I would have thought huckleberry.
We have them down here that look like that:)

I've never heard of them, but they look a little like the red huckleberries we used to pick in Washington as kids.
