Wash and chop the apples into quarters. Peel and core, then chop into chunks. Peel any hard areas from the ginger root and slice. Place the apples and ginger in a stock pot or Dutch oven with a cup of water and bring to the boil, then reduce to simmer until cooked, stirring frequently.

Use a hand blender or other means to puré the apples and ginger. Add the lime juice, sugar, and spices and continue to cook until the sauce is thickened. Bring to the boiling point, then stir in the rum and ladle into hot prepared jars. Process in a canner for 10-20 minutes, depending on the size of jar you are using.

Five pint-sized jars (500 ml) with lids should be adequate.
