Blackberry and marzipan tart

Late summer is the time for bramble picking. Even in the urban centre of a town you'll find places where brambles give their bounty of sweet black berries freely. You won't need much fruit for this recipe, a few handfuls will be enough. It's a shallow tart rather than a filled quiche, and it couldn't be simpler to throw together. We had a great harvest this year from the bramble hedge in the High Town Peace Garden
