- In a large sauce pot over low-medium heat, combine all of the ingredients and gently stir with a wooden spoon. Note: Set aside a few fresh blackberries and the rosemary to use as garnish.
- Bring the cider to a simmer, stirring often. Simmer for at least 1 hour. The longer you let your cider mixture simmer, the more flavorful it becomes.
