Typically you do not want to boil honey as it causes enzymes to break down and lose some of the nutrients desired when using honey. However, in this recipe, we are using the honey as a sweetener in place of white sugar and did not want the strong flavor of our local honey to overpower the blackberry flavor.
When picking out your apples - try to find the under ripe apples. They hold the most pectin. Definitely do not use over ripened apples in this recipe.
