Found this at Australian Gourmet Traveller online. This was sort of a "two part" recipe so I split it up - tartlets as one recipe and the ice cream as the other. Here is the ice cream recipe: Blackberry and Honey Ice-Cream. "Recipe by Jonathan Kemble, Star of Greece restaurant (edited by Adelaide Lucas)" Prep time includes chill time for pastry dough.
