  4. Press into a 9 inch tart pan.
  5. Set in refrigerator while making the filling.
  6. If you are using frozen blackberries make sure they are completely thawed.
  7. If not, they will dilute the filling as they thaw and make it runny.

  9. Blend into a puree.
  10. Place in a small saucepan along with honey and cook puree over medium heat stirring constantly for about 3-4 minutes.

  12. When it thickens and the cloudiness is gone remove from heat.
  13. Mix with rest of the blackberries and fill tart shell.
  14. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
  15. Make sure it is covered so it doesn't pick up moisture from the refrigerator.
