1(2 ounce) packagepowdered fruit pectin
Inspect four pint-sized jars for cracks and rings for rust, discarding any defective ones. Immerse in simmering water until jam is ready. Wash new, unused lids and rings in warm soapy water.
Mix sugar and huckleberries together in a stockpot; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Stir in pectin and boil, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and skim off any surface foam using a metal spoon.
Pack jam into hot, sterilized jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of the top. Run a clean knife or thin spatula around the insides of the jars to remove any air bubbles. Wipe the rims with a moist paper towel to remove any residue. Top with lids and screw rings on tightly.
Place a rack in the bottom of a large stockpot and fill halfway with water. Bring to a boil and lower jars 2 inches apart into the boiling water using a holder. Pour in more boiling water to cover jars by at least 1 inch. Bring to a rolling boil, cover, and process for 5 minutes.
Remove the jars from the stockpot and let rest on a cloth-covered or wood surface, several inches apart, until cool, about 24 hours. Press the center of each lid with a finger to ensure the lid does not move up or down. Store in a cool, dark area.
Press 1/2 of the crushed fruit through a sieve or cheesecloth to get rid of some of the seeds if desired.
To reduce foaming, you can add 1/2 teaspoon of butter or margarine to the berries before bringing them to a boil.
