Sterilise jars and lids in boiling water for at least 10 minutes. Let simmer while making jam.
In a large pan, combine apples, water and lemon juice. Cover, and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in pectin, and bring to the boil. Stir in the caster sugar, and continue boiling and stirring uncovered for 1 minute, until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat, and stir in brown sugar, allspice, and nutmeg.
Quickly fill jars to within 1cm of the top. Wipe rims clean, and top with lids. Process jars in boiling water for 10 minutes to seal.
