Huckleberry Fritters

2 cups huckleberries or blueberries
3 cups unbleached flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
3 eggs
1/2 cup water
oil for deep frying

Wash berries and allow to drain. Sift dry ingredients together into a mixing bowl. Beat eggs with water until foamy. Mix quickly into dry ingredients. Fold in berries. Heat oil or shortening in Dutch oven until a bread cube dropped in the oil turns golden brown in 1 minute. Drop batter by tablespoonfuls into the hot oil. Turn fritters frequently so that they brown to a deep golden color on all sides. Drain on paper towels and serve hot. Makes 2 dozen.
