Chop the apples into small pieces and add to a medium saucepan with the butter and the sugar and cook gently for 3-4 minutes. Next add all the other ingredients and continue to cook for approximately 10-15 minutes (the liquid should have come to the boil at this stage). Allow to simmer very gently, stirring occasionally for a further 10 minutes. Transfer the mixture to sterilised jars and leave to rest for a couple of weeks before using.
